A further two hazard reduction burns will be undertaken this weekend by the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate.
Weather permitting, two hazard reduction burns will be conducted within northern Namadgi National Park on Saturday 14 March and Sunday 15 March 2015, at Blundells Creek and Condor Creek.
These burns are some of several planned over coming weeks, which will collectively total over 7000 hectares. For the duration of the burns significant amounts of smoke is expected in the sky across the ACT.
For more information on the burns visit http://www.cmd.act.gov.au/open_government/inform/act_government_media_releases/tamsd
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.
