Introduction

Dear Sir or madam, Although fireworks are fun and entertaining to watch, they are very dangerous and should not be on sale to the general public. How can anyone predict what a firework is going to do? Even Guy Fawkes intended fireworks to cause death and damage. Even if used with immense caution they are still capable of creating injuries. My first point is that even is this day and age with all the technology available fireworks are still dangerous and very unpredictable, even over eighteens cannot control which way they are going to fly and if they are even going to take off at all. The firework could just suddenly veer off and hit you or your house. ...read more.

Middle

But the injuries caused can be horrific like fingers being blown off, serious burns and other injuries. Someone at my school set off a firework and it exploded in his hand. So now he has a scar on his hand and only half-fingers on one hand. This next fact is also disappointing, 60% of all injuries caused by fireworks are children under 18. I find this horrific that children are able to get hold of fireworks and be at risk of being seriously hurt. My next point is that fireworks are on sale far too early; they are on sale in September when bonfire night is not until November. ...read more.

Conclusion

This is a waste of time money and resources of the emergency services as some people just buy fireworks to cause damage and the emergency services have to go and sort the damage out. Most of the calls around bonfire night are related to fireworks while they are doing this they cannot respond to other calls. If fireworks were not on sale to the general public then would this problem still occur? As you can see fireworks are fun and pretty but they are also very dangerous and something should be done about this either by banning the sale of them all together or just selling them to the arrangers of organised events and not to just anybody. If fireworks were not on sale would all of these problems carry on? Ask yourself that question. Yours faithfully Kirsten Fenwick ...read more.
