Burnination (8 Comments) (link)

If you notice lots of smoke in Sydney this weekend, don't panic, it's (probably) not your house burning down.. they're doing a lot of Hazard Reduction Burns around Sydney this weekend to help minimise the risk of a big bushfire season and to promote native biodiversity.

We ask the public who live near these areas to be aware of that smoke from these fires may at time be quite thick. These burns are well planned and adequate firefighting resources will be on hand. If any member of the public does see a fire of concern, without a fire truck in attendance, they need to call 000 as soon as possible.

We remind residents of Sydney that these hazard reductions are likely to produce very significant amounts of smoke in the Sydney basin. Persons who suffer breathing difficulties should remain indoors or take their normal precautions.


Thanks to Darkness, our resident NSWRFS person!
