CL top cop orders inspection of fireworks manufacturers, dealers

CAMP OLIVAS — A month before the holiday revelry, Central Luzon top cop Brig. Gen. Cesar Pasiwen has ordered random inspection of fireworks manufacturers and dealers following a recent explosion  in Sta. Maria, Bulacan.

Pasiwen said coordination is being made with local government units to see to it that all requirements mandated by the PNP have been complied with prior the issuance of permits to the manufacturers and dealers of firecrackers and pyrotechnic devices to avoid mishaps.

“We will also conduct on-site inspection and confiscation of prohibited firecrackers in public markets, at the same time we continuously appeal to every one to refrain from using illegal firecrackers to avoid any injuries. Instead of firecrackers, we could all enjoy the Holidays with other forms of merriment,” Pasiwen said.
