CHIANG RAI – The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) has launched efforts to combat haze in Chiang Rai and eight other provinces in the northern region and called on local villagers to refrain from burning, which might only worsen the situation.

DDPM Director-General Chatchai Phromlert has ordered the department’s officials in Chiang Rai and eight other provinces (Chiang Mai, Lampang, Lampoon, Mae Hong Son, Nan, Prae, Payao and Tak) to closely monitor the haze situation and spray water to combat dust particulates which could otherwise form haze clouds.

The particulate matter found in the air in the northern region rose over 10 micrograms during the previous day.

The situation in Chiang Mai and Prae has reached emergency level and begun to pose hazards to the people’s health.

The DDPM has strongly urged the residents to refrain from torching garbage or fields, which might worsen the haze situation.
