According to a group of manufacturers, most customers were opting to buy fountains and sparklers because of the anti-firecracker campaign of the government.

“Makikita natin ngayon mas marami ang gumagamit ng fountain, sparklers, mga pailaw.” President of Philippine Fireworks Association Joven ong was quoted in a report by ABS-CBN.

Ong added that customers were opting to buy fountains and sparklers because these are safer and easier to use than firecrackers.

“Nakikita nila mas safe ang mga pailaw, sa EO 28 kasi mas mahirap gamitin ang paputok, mas mabilis gamitin ang mga pailaw,”

Executive Order (EO) No. 28, also known as “Providing For The Regulation and Control of the Use of Firecrackers And Other Pyrotechnic Devices”, bans individuals from using firecrackers or setting up own fireworks display.

Meanwhile, Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III urged Filipinos to turn to safer noisemaker instead to welcome the New Year, as firecracker-related injuries have reached 46.

The top firecrackers that cause injuries are the piccolo, boga, five-star, kwitis, and luces.
