This year’s campaign is entitled “APIR!” Iwas Paputok. The word APIR as described by the UP Diksyunaryong Filipino is a sign of greeting by slapping of the hands. This is also what is termed as “High-Five” or “Give Me Five” in the US.
The campaign still have the hand as its symbol but this time not in a mangled state but instead, a healthy and uninjured hand. The campaign advocates FIVE reminders to prevent injury from firecrackers and FIVE simple alternative tips and ways to spend the New Year’s Eve.
