The provincial government of South Cotabato has urged the children not to light a firecracker this holiday season.

Officials from the Provincial Health Office (PHO) visited Koronadal Central Elementary School II in South Cotabato to campaign against the use of firecrackers in welcoming the New Year.

Instead of firecrackers, the PHO asked the children to blow ready-made trumpets.

The local government noted that in the province, most of the victims of firecracker-related injuries last year were children.
