I am currently employed cleaning the outdoor toilets at the parks and reserves.
When I went to clean the toilet at Hatches Hill part of the sandy point recreational reserve, I found fireworks in the car park area which is close to native bush which included a box which said caution shoots flaming fireballs.
It is fortunate that we didn't have a bush fire!
I have also noted over the past years that throughout the year people are still letting off fireworks.
my opinion is the public sales of fireworks should be banned.
If you agree make a public statement.
