Meanwhile, Manila Ocean Park and Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz in Binondo will be the common area for fireworks display.

The move is in accordance to President Rodrigo Duterte’s Executive Order No. 28 banning the use of firecrackers in residences.

But from the perspective of Manila arson chief Capt. Reden Alumno, it will be safer if the public will stop patronizing pyrotechnics.

“We only have small spaces here. We don’t know where the firecrackers will land. It is expected that at that time we are all busy for New Year,” Alumno said in Filipino.

Nevertheless, he assured that they are on red alert and ready to respond any time emergency happens while the year shifts to 2019.

He is also advising outgoing Manileños to have someone to look after their houses while they are away.

Unplugging appliances, closing windows, and storing a bucket of water or placing a fire extinguisher in an accessible spot will also help minimize the risks of blaze, he added.
