Better to be safe than sorry

Filepic of the PJS 9 Community Night event last year. This year’s gathering scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed because of the worsening air quality.

With the haze situation not letting up in most parts of the country over the last few days, most organisers of outdoor programmes such as runs, community gatherings and gotong-royong have postponed their events while others have decided to call off their activities for safety sake.

Apart from the extra costs that organisers have to bear for the postponement, it is a setback for those who spent months preparing for the events as this means they will have to arrange the planning and logistics all over again.
