The use of illegal fireworks has increased over the past year. They are being detonated at all hours of the day and night. These fireworks affect people, animals and property. Illegal use of fireworks can be dangerous and is a public nuisance. People who use fireworks carelessly or without knowing what they're doing can be killed or maimed and also kill or maim others. Fireworks can burn down houses, damage entertainment venues such as nightclubs, frighten children and adults, cause bushfires, and terrify pets and wildlife.

While fireworks may be entertaining for some or just a nuisance for others, for those living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the constant barrage could trigger serious mental health consequences.

In addition, respiratory issues are likely to be caused by fireworks including: bronchial asthma, pneumonia, allergic bronchitis, sinusitis, and laryngitis. The noise that is produced by the blasts of fireworks has harmful effects on health too. 

Finally, fireworks release a cloud of smoke and matter that affects local air quality.
