Smoke Alert for Busselton to Bunbury

The Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has issued a smoke alert for Busselton to Bunbury, including Capel.

The smoke is the result of prescribed burns being carried out today, 20km south-east of Busselton and 15km east-north-east of Margaret River.

The smoke is expected to clear by early morning tomorrow.

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.
