Hazard reduction burns today at Stromlo and Fisher

ACT Territory and Municipal Services Directorate will conduct two hazard reduction burns today.

The burns will occur from midday at Stromlo Village and Fisher Parkland.

The ACT Handy Map reference for both burns is J13.

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.
