Hazard reduction burn today at Curtin

The Territory and Municipal Services Directorate will today, Wednesday 6 August, 2014, weather permitting, conduct a hazard reduction burn at a wood and debris pile north of Heysen Street, Curtin. The objective of the burn is to reduce the hazard to horses by removing large woody debris.

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.
