Firecracker Injury Prevention Month
December is Firecracker Injury Prevention Month, A DOH Health Event.
Oplan: "Iwas Paputok, Fireworks Display ang Patok! Makiisa sa Community Fireworks sa Inyong Lugar."
Fourmula Kontra Paputok
- Say No to Firecrackers - As prevention is always better than cure, instead of using firecrackers, use drums, tin cans, horns, toy cymbals, among others, to create noises.
- Victims should immediately wash their wounds with clean water and mild soap and go to the nearest health care facility for proper treatment.
- Do not pick up firecrackers that may have failed to explode as these are likely to explode in the picker's hand or face.
- Discourage the indiscriminate firing of guns.
