Every year we have the fight of dealing with fireworks in every area around the country. A lot of us enjoy watching them, with all the oohs and aaahs that go around the crowd. However, it seems every year the number of private persons purchasing fireworks to set of at home seems to grow. These go on constantly from mid October to new year, usually for 4-5 hours a night. Although many of us enjoy fireworks we have to consider the other people, people of a sensitive disposition, perhaps those on the spectrum who are concerned by loud noises, our elderly and also our pets. I myself lost a cat last year around firework season as her heart problems began in line with this. I have no doubt people setting off fireworks is what eventually killed her. This isn't to mention the strain they put on our emergency services, each year you read of antisocial behaviour with fireworks fired at fire fightees for fun. There needs to be a way to restrict people buying fireworks more than just age. There needs to be a legal permit, so as they can still be purchased for special occasions such as new year or anniversary. Fireworks cause damage every year to people and property and harm our neighbours and pets.
