烟霾袭槟州 彭文宝:政府采多项措施驱霾

烟霾再袭槟州,多日来州内的空气指数皆不甚理想,民众受促减少户外活动,并做好预防措施防止烟霾引起健康问题。

因印尼多处出现焚烧热点,加上恰逢季候风把当地热点的烟霾吹入我国,槟州也成为其中一个被烟霾侵袭的州属之一,近日州内都陷入一片朦胧之中。

据环境部每日更新的资料显示,槟州4个探测地点中,位于槟岛的探测地,分别是明登岭和浮罗山背的空气污染指数,更是突破百点,达致不健康水平。

另外,威省两个地点(诗布朗再也和北赖)的空气污染指数,也达致平均为80点中等水平。

槟州福利、爱心社会及环境委员会主席彭文宝同志透露,为了尽快解决烟霾困扰,我国环境部和外交部已经照会印尼政府,表达我国希望印尼尽快扑灭热点火势的意愿。

此外,他说,国家灾难理事会也和气象局及马来西亚皇家空军展开合作,探讨以布雨方式暂时驱散烟霾的可行性。

烟霾指数高居不下 槟政府发放10万口罩予民众

槟州烟霾指数持续上升达危险水平,槟州政府发放10万个口罩予民众,促请民众减少户外活动。

槟州福利、爱心社会及环境委员会主席彭文宝同志今日召开记者会时指出,烟霾侵袭已来到第8天,尽管有下雨,但无法解决烟霾问题,且槟州南部地区也陷入危险水平,尤其是浮罗山背,今早烟霾指数已达到137点。

他强调,一旦烟霾指数超过100点,就被视为非常危险水平,因此州政府决定透过各选区派发口罩予民众,尤其是乐龄人士、小孩以及病人。他同时也呼吁民众减少户外活动,而拥有哮喘等气管疾病的人士若有不适,需尽速就医。

至于学校是否会停课,彭同志表示相信若达到危险水平,教育部会给予进一步的指示。他表示,东马如沙巴、砂拉越的学府在烟霾水平破200点后,已被令停课。而目前州内的学府课外活动也已暂停至另行通知。

他也表示,若烟霾情况持续严重,将严重影响到人民的生活。

Penang reps to distribute face masks to children, senior citizens

All Penang assemblymen have been told to distribute face masks to children and senior citizens, in view of the worsening air quality in the state.

State Welfare, Caring Society and Environment Committee chairman Sdr Phee Boon Poh said the state government has decided to instruct the assemblymen to give out face masks to children and senior citizens in the state.

“This is part of our effort to raise awareness.

“There is a huge shortage of face masks in the market, but we managed to get 50 cartons; about 100,000 pieces to be distributed,” he told a press conference in Komtar today.

Phee said priority would be given to children and senior citizens on the Penang island.

“Due to the Southwest monsoon, the haze from Indonesia was blowing from the west to east. That is why the Air Pollutant Index (API) reading for Balik Pulau is higher as compared to the readings for Minden and the Penang mainland,” he said.

He also gave a stern warning to the public, especially developers, not to conduct commercial open burning.

“Those who are caught performing commercial open burning risk being fined up to RM500,000. We will not compromise.

“The only exceptions given are for religious activity purposes and for villagers, who have since perform open burning to chase away mosquitoes.

“Nevertheless, we still encourage them not to conduct open burning,” he said.

Sdr Phee had yesterday (Sept 11) said the Penang Island City Council and Seberang Perai Municipal Council have been instructed to monitor any open burning activities.

The focus is on factories, construction sites and illegal dumpsites. So far, no open burning activities have been reported.
