To the editor: For almost all of Southern California, excessive ranges of particulate matter and metallic air pollution resulting from fireworks are sometimes simply an annual incidence. However what about these of us who stay inside a number of miles of Disneyland in Anaheim? (“Poor air quality lingering in Los Angeles after July 4 firework shows,” July 5)

We’re pressured to endure a loud and unhealthy 10-minute fireworks present on a nightly foundation throughout peak season, aside from wet days. I’d wish to know what the South Coast Air High quality Administration District has to say in regards to the air high quality in Anaheim after a Disneyland fireworks present.

To the editor: Thanks for reminding us of how California’s inland areas bear the well being price of each formal and “yard” fireworks shows.

These shows pressure our police, hearth departments and well being sources. Their noise masks the sound of unlawful gunshots and terrifies our pets.

However probably the most insidious fireworks hazard comes from the metals that colour these “fairly” bursts. There, tiny burnt particles of strontium and barium can embody hint radioactive isotopes that lodge in our lungs to finally trigger most cancers.

Do we’d like any extra purpose to ban fireworks statewide?

To the editor: Like everybody else in my neighborhood, I used to be stored awake till after 1 a.m. by unlawful Fourth of July fireworks. I do know one man was killed in Montebello, but fireworks are nonetheless being offered.

I do know you possibly can’t purchase them within the metropolis of Los Angeles or unincorporated areas of L.A. County, however you possibly can in a number of neighboring cities and counties, which is a joke.

I believe it’s time for California to ban the sale of all fireworks. Perhaps if somebody needed to journey to a neighboring state that sells them, it could sluggish this down.

Fireworks are harmful and terrorize animals and a few folks with post-traumatic stress dysfunction. They don’t seem to be innocent enjoyable. I believe our state has to take motion.
