With the strong advocacy of the APHO and other partnering agencies, the province recorded its lowest firecracker related injuries cases since 2014. According to Jenevieve Gabin, Nurse II, “So far kung lantawon naton and basehan ang mga numbers since 2014 up to now amo dya ang pinaka-naba naton nga case naton. So far successful man gid man ang aton nga advocacy, ang aton nga mga social media campaign about our iwas-paputok campaign,”.This year, the Province of Antique recorded only two cases of fire cracker related injuries according to the recent report from the Antique Provincial Health Office (APHO). Last 2019, APHO recorded 17 cases of firecracker injuries in the entire province making this year, the lowest recorded cases since 2014.“As of yesterday, may darwa kita ka kaso kang firecracker injuries. Ang sara amo ang four years old from Anini-y, and another one is from San Jose nga 54 year old and passive lang ri-an tana ukon napiskan lang ka kwitis, pero kung lantawon mo ang data naton kaya nga 2020, mas better gid tana kay kang 2019 may 17 cases kita.” Gabin said.The campaign of “Iwas Paputok” was further strengthened with the support and partnership of APHO with other agencies like the Philippine National Police (PNP) and Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and the Local Government Units (LGUs) of every town.“We requested our Bureau of Fire nga magbulig kanaton nga mag recorida para mapamaan sa mga tawo kun ano ka delikado ang paputok nga ginatawag naton, ti kaya nga duro aton bawal nga mga paputok so amo ran tungod sa anda bulig kag tandus nga mga LGUs para sa advocacy activities for “Iwas Paputok”, so nagless ang aton nga number for 2020,” Gabin added.The two recorded case of firecracker injury are both outpatient and has been discharged already. The one from Anini-y was already treated at President Diosdado Macapagal Memorial Hospital in Tobias Fornier and the other one was treated at Angel Salazar Memorial General Hospital.“Okay run man kaya ang darwa naton ka kaso kang firecracker injury, actually, outpatient sanda kaya. Ang sara gintreat didto sa Diosdado Macapagal sa Tobias Fornier kag the other one dyan man sa OPD man naton nga outpatient man, complete man nga na-injecan kang tetanus toxoid and other anti-tetanus injections.”, Gabin further said.
