In addition, PROCOR will mobilize a total of 2,510 Force Multipliers, composed of Barangay Peacekeeping Action Teams (BPATs) and volunteers from Civic Organizations.

Further, various firecrackers, to include Watusi, Piccolo, Poppop, Five Star, Pla-Pla, Lolo Thunder, Giant Bawang, Giant Whistle Bomb, Atomic Bomb, Atomic Triangle, Large Size Judas Belt, Goodbye Delima, Hello Columbia, Goodbye Napoles, Super Yolanda, Mother Rockets, and Kwiton, are prohibited for use as stipulated in Executive Order No. 28 s. 2017 and are due for confiscation if discovered.
In the midst of all the celebrations this holiday, PROCOR encourages the public to always stay alert and vigilant, to ensure their further safety, security, and health, especially since the threat of the COVID-19 is still present in the community.
