Smoke alert issued for Mandurah

The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Mandurah to Manjimup including Busselton, Bunbury, Nannup, Bridgetown, Balingup and Donnybrook in the Cities of Mandurah, Busselton and Bunbury and the Shires of Manjimup, Bridgetown-Greenbushes, Donnybrook-Balingup and Nannup 

The smoke is the result of prescribed burns being carried out today near Manjimup by DBCA’s Parks and Wildlife Service and 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.
