There is a call being made today for more responsibility when using fireworks.
Chief executive officer of FireOne Fireworks Andre Abraham says that the Company has been seeking to ensure that its customers use fireworks responsibly this year.
Speaking with News Power Now yesterday he said that fireworks must always be used in an open park, away from highways and residences.
He also disclosed that respect should also be shown to neighbours who have elderly persons, young children or animals at their homes.
Abraham noted that the laws governing the use of fireworks in this country are archaic and over one hundred years old.
He maintained that the laws need to be updated.
To this end he revealed that the situation is already being addressed.
