WhatsApp NREB to report open burning


MIRI: Following the persistent dry and hot weather in Miri, Piasau assemblyman Datuk Sebastian Ting has reminded people to drink more water and to stop open burnings during this dry season.

He added that open burnings could lead to more bushfires, which in turn can cause haze.

“Bushfires occur almost daily and have caused the hazy weather,” he said when contacted.

Ting also recommended that relevant authorities carry out cloud seeding if necessary, bring rain.

He also advised and called on the public, especially elderly people and children, to take care of their health and reduce outdoor activities.

“This can aggravate conditions such as asthma and cause health problems,” he said.

Members of the public can report on individuals doing open burnings to the authorities by calling the hotline (082-319543), sending a message via WhatsApp (013-7595866), or going through its website (www.nreb.gov.my).
