Hazard reduction burn at Lyons

The Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) is conducting a hazard reduction burn today at Lyons.

The burn is located at Oakey Hill, east of the Tuggeranong Parkway.

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.
