The government aims to achieve zero firecracker-related injuries this year through implementation of Executive Order No. 28 Providing for the Regulation and Control of the Use of Firecrackers and other Pyrotechnic Devices.
The law signed by President Duterte stipulates that the use of firecrackers shall be confined to community fireworks display to minimize the risk of injuries and casualties. Conduct of community fireworks display will also be continuously promoted as a strategy to, at least maintain the low injury status in the country.
Let us welcome 2018 without an injury due to firecrackers and support fireworks display in our respective communities.
