Each Barangays will be providing a designated area where firecrackers can be lit or used.
This is what Fire Inspector Joseph Cadag of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) Boracay wants the public to understand for a safe Christmas and New Year celebration in the island of Boracay.
Cadag said that the government, specifically the Department of Health has a number of programs against accidents due to firecrackers and pyrotechnics.
In line with this, Barangay officials do provide a specific place where it can be used, and this is usually at the Plaza.
He added that they at the BFP Boracay are doubling up their efforts for this campaign.
Cadag also advised the Boracay and Malay community to alternatively use the traditional way of creating noise during the New Year, which are the lids of pots and pans as well as the trumpets.
Aside from this he added that, people could just opt to dance and music instead to avoid any accidents and for everybody’s safety.
