Smoke Alert for Bunbury to Margaret River

The Department of Parks and Wildlife has issued a smoke alert for Bunbury to Margaret River, including Donnybrook. 

Smoke will be visible until late tomorrow morning. The smoke is the result of a number of prescribed burns being carried out in the South West today.

WHAT TO DO:  

If the smoke is particularly thick, it is recommended people shut doors and windows and turn off air-conditioners.

Smoke may reduce visibility on some roads and motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds when travelling in these areas.

People with asthma and pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses should follow their pre-prepared treatment plan.

People with conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice for these circumstances.
