The Department of Health has released a list of “most dangerous Cities and Barangays” due to fireworks related injuries from 2010 up to 2012.
Marikina City is 5th on the list of cities here in Metro Manila according to Dr. Eric Tayag. The ranking was based on the “number of most dangerous barangays for fireworks injuries and number of Fireworks injuries in these barangays”
He also listed the the top 4 barangays in Marikina with the most number of Fireworks related injuries:
- Concepcion Uno
- Sto. Niño
This year, Marikina City will try to mitigate the growing number of injuries due to fireworks by designating fireworks zones in every Barangay. I’m still looking for a copy of this ordinance.
