Exec suggests amending slogan on firecracker ban
by PIO release

From Iwas Paputok,” to “Bawal na ang Paputok.”

Baguio City Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan recommended to the Department of Health and the Office of the Civil Defense to explore the possibility of changing the anti-firecracker slogan – one that sends a clear message to the people to refrain from lighting firecrackers during the celebration of the Christmas and New Year.

“We already recommended to the concerned authorities to change their slogan to make it clear to the people that the use of firecrackers during the Yuletide season is prohibited,” Domogan said.

He also thanked Baguio residents who heeded repeated appeals not to use firecrackers. He said this contributed significantly in reducing the number of firecracker-related injuries in the city for the period Dec. 21, 2017 to Jan. 5.

He said the drastic drop in the number of firecracker-related injuries is a clear indication that the city council has to enact an ordinance imposing a total ban on the sale, disposal, and manufacture of firecrackers in the city and regulating the use of pyrotechnic materials for special occasions.

Domogan also directed the Baguio City Police Office to file charges against an individual arrested for selling prohibited firecrackers in the city to serve as warning that the local government means business in banning the sale of firecrackers.

On Dec. 31, 2017, personnel of the Public Order and Safety Division arrested 23-year-old Noraldine Macalimpao, a resident of Crystal Cave, for violating the Anti-Peddling Ordinance. He was caught selling packs of firecrackers worth P250,  while his cohorts escaped to an unknown direction. He and the evidence confiscated were brought to the BCPO for the filing of the charges against him and his possible cohorts.

To sustain the ban, Domogan appealed to the residents to continue cooperating.
