Fireworks are a traditional part of enjoying celebrations such as
Bonfire Night or New Year but they cause of hundreds of serious
accidents every year.
The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to go to a professionally organised event.
If you buy fireworks, make sure they are marked for 'Indoor, Garden or Display' use.
Professionally organised displays are regulated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Retailers selling fireworks must be registered with Oldham Council's
Trading Standards who investigate problems with unsafe products.
