Hazard reduction burn tonight at Tidbinbilla

A private landholder will tonight conduct a small hazard reduction burn at Tidbinbilla.

The burn is expected to commence shortly on the "Gibraltar View" property on Tidbinbilla Road.

Temporary smoke cover may occur.

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.
