Hazard burn at Mount Painter

A six hectare hazard burn is planned for Mount Painter tomorrow.

ACT Territory and Municipal Services has advised that, weather permitting, the burn will take place west of Bindubi Street, south of Wybalena Grove.

The ACT Handy Map reference is K11.

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.
