As the Yuletide season approaches, the Bureau of Fire Protection intensifies campaign against firecrackers and other pyrotechnic products to ensure public safety during the entire season. The campaign focuses primarily on the safety of the public especially the minors who tend to be the victims of pyrotechnic and firecracker accidents.

The BFP nationwide through its Regional, Provincial and City/Municipal Fire Stations will be monitoring places, streets and highways, particularly during the eves of Christmas and New Year to ensure that firecracker and pyrotechnic-related injuries and other untoward accidents will be prevented. BFP personnel are prepared anytime to assist/respond in case of emergency. The bureau will also be on heightened alert during the season and will detail personnel to render 24 hours duty to ensure fire-free holidays.

Meanwhile, the BFP encourages the public not to patronize christmas decors, firecrackers and other pyrotechnic products that are illegal or sub-standard that may cause harm. BFP also reminds the public of fire safety, especially for those who are planning to have their Christmas and New Year vacation outside home. Before leaving the house, always unplug electrical appliances; switch off the main source of power; do not leave lighted candles, lamps or cigarettes; close LPG valve; and secure flammable/combustible substances in a safe area. If possible, ask your neighbor or nearby friend/ relative to check your house from time to time.

By means of continuous public cooperation, the BFP hopes for zero firecracker-related injuries, and a minimal number of fire incidents at the end of this year and through the coming year.
