Pasay warns residents against using firecrackers

account_balancePasay chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Pasay City cautioned residents against using firecrackers and instead asked them to use empty cans and other noise makers for the New Year celebration.

“Our celebrations for the coming year 2020 must be safe and truly meaningful as it brings us new opportunities and new hope. We must welcome the new year in good health and shape,” said Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano.

Calixto-Rubiano said that the city fully supported President Rodrigo Duterte’s Executive Order No. 28 which bans citizens from putting up their own fireworks displays or using firecrackers in their residences, and the Department of Health’s (DOH) Iwas Paputok campaign.

“As alternative to firecrackers, we can use empty cans, trumpets, car horns and many others to make our New Year’s welcome noise, but which are safer to us, to our families and our communities,” Mayor Calixto-Rubiano said.

For those who opt for louder and more extravagant revelry noise and scenes, the Pasay Police, in coordination with City Hall and the barangays, have identified two fireworks display zones in the city, namely: SM MOA and Sofitel Hotel.

Mayor Calixto-Rubiano said that she has instructed the police and all barangay officials to strictly enforce the regulation on firecrackers and fireworks.

Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, the City Health Office, Command Center and the Bureau of Fire were also told to constantly monitor during the holidays and attend to anyone who might get hurt or who might need any emergency assistance during the celebrations.
