Firecrackers of various make and pyrotechnic works make the new year's revelry enjoyable and entertaining sans accidents and any untoward incidences beyond human control.
|Pyrotechnics and Firecrackers|
While Christians like us have fun with these various made or style of firecrackers for a revelry, to welcome the new year with jubilation in a party, family gathering or reunion, and any celebration for that matter.
Adults and the kids alike enjoy these new year "noise makers" which the firecrackers are the best resource and they are enhanced by some pyrotechnic works like sparklers, luces, fountain, Roman candle, trompillo, among others.
However accidents really do happen beyond everyone's control. Therefore, the PH government is regulating the selling, distribution and production of these firecrackers for they are too dangerous. Accident may happen beyond the control of anyone else, how much more with those vendors of firecrackers.
Many lives have been reported lost because of accidental lighting of firecrackers by prospective buyers who are testing their firecrackers bought.
After new year's eve, hospitals around the country are populated with victims of premature explosion of explosives like "bawang", "super lolo", and other unauthorized firecrackers.
In spite of those deterrent incidences, there are still people who are not afraid to indulge in firing firecrackers and buying illegally made firecrackers. They still set aside a sum of money just to get a stock of their own favorite "explosives".
What are we going to do with those hardheaded people? The law, Republic Act 7183, is so clear about the sale and distribution and even the use of firecrackers and other pyrotechnic devices, and their limitations and penalties.
Thus, any violation of this act should be fine of not less than twenty thousand pesos (Php20,000.00) nor more than thirty thousand pesos (Php30,000.00) or imprisonment of not less than six (6) months nor more than one (1) year, and cancellation of their license and business permit.
