When are public officials going to ban the open sale of fireworks? Last year, more than 13,000 calls were made regarding problems with them, inning accordance with the Criminal offense Avoidance site. Peace of mind determines that professionals must be the only ones to deal with and display fireworks.
Fireworks also frighten animals into fleing. Please keep your animals inside throughout the holiday. Lots of animals left outdoors are frenzied to leave the noise. Some will get struck by automobiles and others will end up at a shelter. Some will simply disappear.
Animal Control, firefighters, Metro and individuals who lose their animals back would likely be appreciative for a restriction on fireworks. It is the safe, sane and right thing to do.
