MANILA, Philippines — Some local government units and police stations in Metro Manila launched motorcades promoting public safety from firecrackers just hours before the New Year.

A tweet from Manila Public Information Office showed some firetrucks and police cars with fire prevention tarpaulins pass through streets of Tondo, Manila to inform citizens of avoiding fireworks as they greet the New Year.
