The Peat Fire on Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera) have spread from six hotspots to ten hotspots. MKN 20 have been activated according to the SOP. Aerial Water bombing using seawater is on going due to the accessibility. All agencies are on full alerted and reporting to the command centre. All hiking activities in affected area including path leading up is now prohibited. Please take note that safety first policy is strictly implemented. I appeal for full cooperation especially on traffic management to allow faster movement of vehicles during operation. All trained Bomba Sukarela members be on alert and be ready to be mobilised if the situation need. Meanwhile we assured that the whole Government Machinery – PDRM BOMBA etc are in full control of the situation.
