In preparation for the coming Yuletide season, the Philippine National Police (PNP) in coordination with the Philippine Pyrotechnics Manufacturers and Dealers Association, Incorporated (PPMDAI) conducted recently the Fireworks Safety Refresher Course for all manufacturers, dealers and retailers of firecrackers and other pyrotechnic devices in the whole country.
CSupt. Emelito T. Sarmiento, Director of the PNP Civil Security Group, together with CSupt. Napoleon Estilles, Chief, Firearms and Explosive Office (FEO), and PPMDAI officers personally supervised the conduct of the seminars. Three seminars were held, as seen below:
|1||November 26, 2010||Camp Osmena PRO7, Cebu City||6, 7, 8|
|2||December 1, 2010||Camp Alagar PRO10, Cagayan de Oro City||9, 10, 11, 12, 13,
|3||December 14, 2010||Hiyas Pavilion, Malolos, Bulacan||1, 2, 3, 4a, 4b, 5,
In the seminar, Arcadio “Adiong” Sta. Ana, safety consultant of PPMDAI, a pyrotechnician with 53 years of experience in manufacturing fireworks, gave a lecture on lessons learned from past and present explosions and accidents in the industry. He emphasized that making fireworks is a dangerous business and the safety guidelines in handling, mixing, loading and packaging should be given the utmost importance. Rolando Bonilla, PPMDAI spokesman, said that that support from the government through conducting more seminars is essential for the development to the fireworks industry.
Celso C. Cruz, Chairman Emeritus of PPMDAI, said that this is a milestone in the industry, as no less than the Director of the Civil Security Group took time to go around the country to teach all the stakeholders and the public the proper ways to safely enjoy the coming New Year celebration with a bang. He said that,” we are now preparing the schedule of seminars to be conducted at the second and third quarter for the year 2011 and will post at PPMDAI website (www.ppmdai.org) for further information.”
Meanwhile, Vimie Erese, President of PPMDAI, predicts that the fireworks sales will skyrocket as Filipinos will be in a festive mood to celebrate the newfound hope and prosperity brought about by the new administration headed by President Noynoy Aquino. She cautioned the public to be extra careful because even legal fireworks can cause injury if not used properly.

US news Las Vegas
Police and stakeholders of the local pyrotechnics industry are working hand-in-hand to ensure safety in the manufacture and sales of fireworks products in anticipation of the high demand for the Christmas season.
The PNP- Civil Security Group (CSG), in coordination with the Philippine Pyrotechnics Manufacturers and Dealers Association Inc. (PPMDAI) and the Provincial Government of Bulacan, on Tuesday held a one-day fireworks safety refresher course at the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center here.
MALOLOS CITY, Philippines — Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado urged manufacturers of fireworks in the province to produce safe and quality products and strictly comply with safety measures imposed by the authority to prevent accidents in work places.
Alvarado also instructed the Bulacan Police Provincial Office (PPO), headed by Senior Superintendent Fernando S. Villanueva, to continue the conduct of inspections on factories and stores, to ensure that regulations are strictly observed.
The governor told Villanueva to arrest illegal manufacturers, particularly those engaged in making banned and killer types of firecrackers and those employing minors.
“Many people are also dependent on the local fireworks industry, which is one of the major industries identifiable with Bulacan. I believe our local manufacturers can produce safe and good quality fireworks like those being presented in aerial fireworks displays. It’s just a matter of proper management and discipline,” Alvarado said.
May 8, 2010 therefore has become one more triumphant date in the history of Cebuanos. At the 1st Cebu Fest, Cebu-based Pyroworks International, Inc. headed by Brian Benjamin Lim became the certified Guinness World Record holder for “most firework rockets launched in 30 seconds”.
Pyroworks fired 125,801 rockets, creating a thundering, reverberating noise and filling the sky with a dazzling, white light that left the audience stunned. The team broke the record previously held by Dr. Roy Lowry of the UK by more than double. Lowry launched 56,405 firework rockets at the 10th British Firework Championship in Plymouth on August 16, 2006.
Meeting all the specifications set by the organization, Lim accepted the certificate from Aleksandr Vyrpiralenko, Records Management Representative of Guinness World Records and thanked his hard-working crew for their role in the achievement.
Dealers of firecrackers and pyrotechnics around the country appealed to the government to intensify the campaign against imported firecrackers during the holiday season.
Rolando Bonillo, spokesman of the Philippine Pyrotechnics Manufactured and Dealers Association Inc. (PPMDAI), said their business is affected by cheap imported products.
