CLMMRH joins the annual campaign of the Department of Health in advocating against the use of firecrackers during the holiday season. It is the aim of the hospital to reduce firecracker-related injury cases through constant education and awareness. The FWRI Surveillance report revealed a total of 413 cases of FWRIs in 2019 where 411 injuries were due to fireworks, one firework ingestion, and one stray bullet injury. The National Capital Region (NCR) had the most number of FWRIs with 198 cases, followed by Western Visayas with 47, Ilocos region with 38, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) with 33, and Central Luzon with 25 cases. "With the pandemic, I hope our Kababayans would realize that the unnecessary spending at this time would mean a tremendous impact on our pockets. Let us greet the New Year with new hope, a new beginning and new normal."- Dr. Julius M. Drilon, CLMMRH Medical Center Chief
