This Saturday's scheduled Cracker Night has drawn criticism from the RSPCA in terms of its impact on pets, in particular dogs.
RSPCA Tasmania chief executive Andrew Byrne said Cracker Nights have a history of causing an increase in dog numbers in shelters.
"The Dog's Home will certainly be loaded with dogs," Dr Byrne said.
"It's just a demonstration of the fear that's put through dogs when Cracker Night happens.
"They're put into this really intense state of fear and don't know what to do with themselves and can't put themselves in safe place."
Building and Construction Minister Sarah Courtney notes that a permit from WorkSafe Tasmania is required to hold a fireworks display.
"Now is a timely reminder for Tasmanians to take care when taking part in this tradition," Ms Courtney said.
"While I hope Tasmanians can enjoy Cracker Night to the full, it is important for people ensure they have the right permits and understand their obligations before they set off their fireworks."
In other news:
WorkSafe guidelines state that firework users must keep their pets indoors during displays.
Dr Byrne said with alternatives such as laser and light shows that don't emit loud noises, Cracker Nights should be a thing of the past.
"I would like to see the end of Cracker Nights," he said.
"There really doesn't seem to be a reason to have Cracker Nights and the fear that it puts into the animals around town is really sad.
"Some of them find themselves escaping and running around roads and of course that's fraught with all sorts of danger when you've got animals running around the roads at night."
Dr Byrne said the best thing pet owners can do was to be with their animals during the fireworks.
