MANILA, Philippines — Ten health centers and three city-run hospitals in Quezon City are prepared and equipped to treat firecracker-related injuries during the celebration of New Year.

In a statement on Tuesday, Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said the hospitals include Quezon City General Hospital, Rosario Maclang Bautista General Hospital, and Novaliches District Hospital.


“It’s better to be prepared for any eventuality than be caught off-guard in case of emergencies,” Belmonte said.

Quezon City’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (QCDRRM) Office was also placed under yellow alert to monitor all firecracker zones stationed in the city.


QCDRRM along with barangays will also ensure that ambulances are fielded for the immediate response of victims of firecracker-related injuries.
