Council would like to notify residents of an upcoming Hazard reduction burn scheduled for Wednesday, March 22.
To prepare your home in case of smoke:
Keep doors and windows closed to prevent smoke entering homes.
Keep outdoor furniture under cover to prevent ember burns.
Retract pool covers to prevent ember damage.
Remove washing from clotheslines.
Ensure pets have a protected area.
Vehicles must slow down, keep windows up, turn headlights on
Sightseers must keep away from burns for their own safety.
If you have asthma or a lung condition, reduce outdoor activities if smoke levels are high and if shortness of breath or coughing develops, take your reliever medicine or seek medical advice
