The ACT Rural Fire Service Gungahlin Brigade will assist two landholders with hazard reduction burns, tomorrow, Saturday 4 October, 2014, weather permitting, at the properties “Canberra Truffles” and “Glenlyle”, both on Majura Road, Majura.
Three fire tankers and 19 personnel will conduct the burns of piles of vegetation. The burns are expected to commence from 9am until 5pm.
Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burns in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.
The Health Directorate advises that people with asthma, other chronic respiratory and/or chronic cardiac diseases should not perform vigorous exercise and should stay inside if affected by the smoke. People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.
