DAILY FACTS ABOUT EARTH HOUR

Day 8: March 8th 2013

What lights can be safely switched off?

That is a decision that has to be made individually but usually the overhead lights in rooms (whether it is your house or a business), outdoor lighting that does not impact safety, computers, decorative lights, neon signs for advertising, televisions, desk lamps, the list goes on and on. There are a few lights we can say with certainty that should NOT be turned off, including safety lights in public spaces, lights for aviation guidance, traffic lights, security lights, just to name a few. We ask people to use common sense. Before you turn off any lights for public spaces Earth Hour recommends you check with local officials or community centres. In your own home, use common sense with respect to safety. Keep small night lights on for basic safety especially in halls and on stairs. Make sure you have alternative light sources handy before Earth Hour starts, like torches or flashlights. That way if you need to see, you have a light source close at hand, and you can still respect the spirit of Earth Hour and keep yourself and your family safe.

Lampu seperti apa yang dapat dimatikan?

Pilihan ini tergantung individu masing-masing. Namun biasanya yang dimatikan adalah lampu langit-langit ruangan (baik di rumah ataupun perkantoran), lampu di luar ruangan yang tidak berdampak pada keselamatan/ketertiban, komputer, lampu hias, lampu neon papan iklan, tv, lampu meja, dan sebagainya. Beberapa lampu justru jangan dimatikan, diantaranya lampu penerangan umum, lampu bandara, lampu traffic lights, lampu penerangan jalan, dsb. Sebelum mematikan lampu di ruang publik, Earth Hour menganjurkan Anda untuk mengecek kepada petugas setempat. Di rumah Anda sendiri, gunakan kesadaran rasional demi keamanan. Tetap nyalakan lampu dengan penerangan kecil untuk standar keamanan terutama di aula dan tangga. Sebeum memulai Earth Hour, pastikan lampu alternartif (seperti senter) ada di tangan Anda. Dengan begitu Anda masih dapat melihat sambil tetap mendukung semangat Earth Hour, menjaga diri Anda dan keluarga tetap aman.
