to the amazement of the onlookers in various parts of the city.
Firetrucks became very bright and colorful
and truly a feast for everyone's senses.
as the bright and colorful firetrucks passed by.
Their adorned Christmas lights
were far brighter than the city street lights
and people hurriedly came out to witness.

but there's more to it than that.
As an important agency in the city or any locality,
BFP reminded everyone to stay safe during Christmas,
and help prevent fire
especially from the use of Christmas lights
and from firecrackers - never use those that are banned namely:
Watusi, piccolo, super lolo, atomic triangle, large Judas belt,
large bawang, pillbox, bosa, Goodbye Philippines, Bin Laden,
mother rocket, lolo thunder, coke in can, atomic bomb,
five star, pla-pla, giant whistle bomb and kabasi.
It wishes every family a very Merry Christmas
far away from harm or danger.
A safety reminder:
When buying Christmas decors and lights,
make sure to inspect them first
for Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) Stickers
that guarantees they've passed safety standards
by the Department Of Trade And Industry (DTI)
and are safe to use by the consumers.
If you don't see that ICC sticker, forget it.
You could be taking home a dangerous
or disastrous product.
