Several dealers and sellers of pyrotechnics and firecrackers in Zamboanga City with expired licenses volunteered and agreed to have their stores and warehouses checked and inspected by authorities.

Police Regional Office-9  Public Information Officer Chief Insp. Ariel T. Huesca  Jr., concurrently chief of the Firearms Explosives Security Agency Guard Section (FESAGS)  met with the different pyrotechnics and firecracker dealers on Wednesday at the FESAGS Office in Camp Batalla where they manifested their intention to have their stores inspected.

Huesca said it was a good move by the firecracker dealers and sellers volunteering to have their  stores and warehouses inspected because FESAGS will renew their licenses only after the inspection.

“Inspection is very important so that we will determine if the stores and warehouses are safe to the environment and neighboring buildings or residences,” Huesca explained.

He said that his office will determine if the stores and warehouses keeping pyrotechnics and firecrackers are not dangerous to the environment and will not likely cause damages to properties and lives.

Huesca said his office is implementing a directive of PRO-9 Director Chief Supt. Juanito B. Vaño for all stores and warehouses of pryrotechnics and firecracker dealers in the region to be inspected and checked  to ensure that the safety of the people and their properties are not compromised in case of accidental explosions. — Allen Abastillas
