” Knowing that our pets have a hearing capacity three times greater than that of man or any human being, and by the simple roar of a fire, this generates severe disorders in their health as well; then, we do have to take into consideration That is so that tomorrow we want to detonate a fire, first we think a little about what can happen to us and then we think about the pets we have at home, “he said in a bulletin issued by the SSyTM.

However, the same City Council ignored its preventive campaign, because, during the ” Welcome 2022 ” celebration that took place in Olas Altas on December 31, there was a detonation of pyrotechnics on this coastal walk that lasted more than a minute.

Although it is true that it was managed by experts in the field, the detonation in bodies of water considerably increases the pollution snows, also the noise and the lights, the result of the outbursts that are made for a long time and in large amounts, it disturbs ecosystems, according to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.

Semarnat mentions that from several meters away, you can even perceive the smell generated by the pollution of the mixture of nitrates, sulfates, perchlorates in formulas of sodium, copper, strontium, lithium, antimony, magnesium, aluminum and barium.

It is added that neutralizers, oxidants and binders are mixed in the pyrotechnics, in addition to the sodium perchlorate that gives propulsion to the rocket, the heavy metals that provide the color and the aerosols that cause the detonation.

Already in the air, he indicates, this mixture releases, among others, carbon monoxide and suspended particles and together with emissions from transport, factories, fires, and burning of tires or garbage, it generates high pollution, poor visibility and a feeling of mist.

When inhaled, these components generate serious respiratory illnesses, since they enter directly to the lung fundus, they can cause sudden discomfort due to poisoning and even death while the metals impact the respiratory system.

It emphasizes that the sodium perchlorate that detonates the rocketry near the bodies of water increases up to a thousand times the normal levels, damages microorganisms and aquatic fauna.

The most vulnerable to fireworks are children, the elderly, people with respiratory or cardiovascular problems and animals, as well as the environment.
