Update, 7am – your ICCS event should not proceed as 1-hour PM2.5 readings are still above acceptable concentrations. ICCS will not be accepting data submissions for this day; safety first!
6am – I am suggesting Organisers cancel your ICCS event. As of this time, the 1-hour PM 2.5 levels are too high for sustained or strenuous work.
Although the 1-hour PM2.5 has been declining between 4am – 6am, it may still be relatively high for the rest of the morning. And the NEA Haze Forecast states that “The 24-hr PSI is forecast to range between the high end of the Moderate range and low end of the Unhealthy range, and depending on the wind conditions, may enter the mid-section of the Unhealthy range”. See: https://www.haze.gov.sg
With this available information, we are cancelling the event.
If you wish to participate on Sat 19 Oct 2019 instead, let us know at: http://tinyurl.com/iccs2019-haze
Or you may contact your zone captain directly.
All the best and look after your health, everyone!
