Dandim 0314 / Indragiri Hilir Lt. Col. Inf Imir Faishal urged the community to avoid clearing land by burning it, especially during the dry season.
He conveyed, with the arrival of the dry season and hot enough weather in the Indragiri Hilir regency area, it would certainly cause a hotspot in the Indragiri Hilir district which was carried out by irresponsible citizens, causing land fires and causing air pollution so that the air was polluted and could result in a loss for both the community and the regional ecosystem.
“Negligence and deliberate factors are the main things that certain individuals do for personal gains, such as clearing land without thinking about the impacts that will occur. If at any time a land fire occurs, you don’t know where the fire source came from and ignore the fire that was originally small until causing the fire to grow and causing an adverse impact, “said Dandim 0314 / Indragiri Hilir, on Monday (22/02/2021) when holding a meeting with all ranks of Kodim 0314 / Indragiri Hilir in the data room for Makodim 0314 / Indragiri Hilir.
Moreover, in Indragiri Hilir district, which has deep enough peat and difficult and limited water sources, if a land fire occurs accompanied by strong winds, it will certainly cause the fire to spread rapidly.
Dandim 0314 / Indragiri Hilir hopes that the community, starting from the RT / RW and the Village Head, will protect and provide information to village officials, as well as Babinsa and Babinkantibmas, so that fires can be overcome and do not spread, causing forest and land fires.
“Let us protect the same and no more clearing land by burning and we try to cooperate and remind each other,” said Dandim 0314 / Indragiri Hilir Lt. Col. Inf Imir Faishal.
