0

BAGUIO CITY: Find a safer alternative of making noise and merry-making instead of firecrackers/fireworks in celebrating Christmas and welcoming the new year. This was the message of the Department of Health- Cordillera Regional Office (DOH-CAR) and partner agencies officials during the launching of this year’s “Iwas Paputok” advocacy campaign last Wednesday at the DOH regional office here. DOH-CAR Assistant Regional Director Dr. Amelita Pangilinan, said the “Iwas Paputok” campaign theme, “Maging ligtas ngayong kapaskuhan, mga biktima ng kalamidad handugan” (Be safe this Christmas Season and help victims of calamities) aims to reiterate the health department’s advocacy against the use of firecrackers/fireworks to ensure the safety and health of everyone. DOH Health Emergency Management System head Elnoria Bugnosen said 58 cases of fireworks related injuries in the region have been recorded from December 21, 2012 to January 4, 2013.
