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.

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.
