Smoke Alert for Nannup to Augusta

Take Care On The Road

Smoke Alert for Nannup to Augusta

The Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has issued a smoke alert for Nannup to Augusta in the Shires of Nannup and Augusta-Margaret River.

The smoke is the result of a prescribed burn being carried out today 20km-west of Manjimup.

The smoke is expected to clear overnight.

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.
