Hazard Reduction burn tomorrow at Yarralumla

The National Capital Authority will tomorrow, Saturday 2 May, 2015, weather permitting, conduct a hazard reduction burn at Yarralumla.

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.
