Health and Safety - Fireworks

Fireworks are popular as part of celebrations traditionally on Bonfire Night or at New Year but more than ever they are being used throughout the year. They are also dangerous explosive devices and the cause of many serious accidents every year. The safest way to enjoy them is to go to a professionally organised event.
