Councilor Benjamin “Nonong” Guingona yesterday urged authorities to intensify their campaign against the sale of big firecrackers and other pyrotechnics which are in violation of Mayor Celso Lobregat’s Executive Order.
The councilor also warned dealers and traders in the city from selling huge firecrackers that falls under the items banned by the mayor’s executive order.
Guingona identifies the different pyrotechnics being banned from selling are pla-pla, super lolo, piccolo, goodbye Philippines, kwiton, crying cows, whistle bomb, big triangles and other powerful firecrackers
The councilor noted during the New Year’s revelry, most of the victims that land in the hospitals are minors.
“I hope parents should also be concerned with their children during the celebration of the New Year. Parents should always supervise their children during the celebration of the new year’s eve,” Guingona said.
Guingona is discouraging the minors from using pyrotechnics in welcoming the New Year’s celebration as this is one of the major causes of fire.
“Mas bueno pa si maga parents kumpra ya lang torotot cunel maga bata que rebentador.”
