NORMIN WELCOMES 2019 WITH LOWEST RECORD OF FIRECRACKER- RELATED INJURY; NO STRAY BULLET INCIDENT RECORD
New Year revelry in NorMin was relatively peaceful with the lowest incident of firecracker-related injuries recorded regionwide. Record shows only two (2) confirmed firecracker-related injury and two (2) other individuals with different injuries whose causes are still being investigated.
The victims recorded in Cagayan de Oro sustained burns and were both brought to Northern Mindanao Medical Center, a government hospital. “The number of new year revelry-related incident may however change due to delays in seeking medical help and late reporting, “NorMin police regional spokesman PSupt Surki Sereñas said.
“We are attributing this remarkable record to the good people of Northern Mindanao who did not fire their firearms and were responsible merry-makers as we welcomed 2019, “NorMin police regional director PCSupt Timoteo Pacleb said.
“The entire holiday season was generally peaceful and this is something we should be proud of,” Pacleb said.
Happy New Year from the men and women of Police Regional Office 10. #
