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. For more information on why you should do planned burns, and when planned burning takes place, visit the DFES website.

Requesting Brigade to burn off on private property

Bushfire smoke and your health

Smoke from bushfires 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 doors and windows closed
  • Turning off air-conditioners
  • People with conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice for these circumstances

For more information visit the Department of Health website.
