Prescribed burning

Firebreaks

Prescribed bushland burning significantly reduces the amount of ground vegetation (fuel) that acts as a fire hazard during our summer months.  Prescribed burning also helps maintain our natural bushland’s biodiversity.

Use the form below to request a hazard reduction burn by the Bush Fire Brigades.

Bushfire smoke and your health

Smoke from bush fires can exacerbate asthma and other respiratory conditions and can cause a cough, shortness of breath and irritate the eyes, nose and throat.

If there is a prescribed burn in your area, try to minimise your exposure to smoke by:

  • Staying inside and keeping windows and doors closed 
  • If using an air conditioner, set it to ‘recirculate mode’

If you have a respiratory condition such as asthma, ensure you have your regular medications at hand.
