Two hazard burns planned for North Canberra

Two hazard reduction burns will be conducted tomorrow, Monday March 24, weather permitting, in Canberra's north.

The ACT Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) has advised a 3.5 hectare burn will take place at Gossan Hill, Bruce and a 6 hectare burn at Mt Painter, Cook.

The ACT Handy Map reference is K11 for Gossan Hill and J11 for Mt Painter.

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.
