The ACT Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) will conduct several controlled burns, weather permitting, this weekend (14/15 December).
Burns will be undertaken at:
O'Connor, between Dryandra St and Barry Drive
O'Connor Ridge Nature Reserve, adjacent to Dryandra Street, O'Connor
The Pinnacle Nature Reserve, adjacent to Hawker
Hall (various sites)
Isaacs Ridge Nature Reserve, adjacent to Isaacs
Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burn 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.
