Oca Malapitan reminds Caloocan residents: no more paputok for 2018
Call him a party pooper, but he just wants the safety of all.
Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan has released a new memorandum that prescribes the guidelines for firecrackers in Caloocan City to welcome the new year, taking off from the Executive Order signed by President Rodrigo Duterte back in June 2017.
Malapitan reminded residents not to use any of the loud and dangerous noisemakers, but said that lights display like sparklers and fountains will still be allowed. He also designated barangay chairmen to identify display zones for community fireworks so there can still be a semblance of new year lights to color the sky.
Happy new year!
