The Department of the Interior and Local Government sets its eyes on zero firecracker-related injury for the holidays, especially during the New Year’s Eve.

DILG spokesman Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya said no firecracker-related injury has been reported so far.

He urged the public to prioritize their safety especially in the face of the COVID-19 theat.

“It is the tradition of Filipinos to usher in the New Year with fireworks as families indulge in their media noche. However, the pandemic and the new normal entails adjustments to ensure everyone is safe at home together,” Malaya said.

Malaya is optimistic that the zero-casualty target is attainable, citing the drop of firecracker-related incidents in the previous years.
