Smoke alert issued for Mandurah to Kwinana

The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Kwinana to Mandurah, including those in the City of Kwinana, Rockingham, Mandurah and the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale.

The smoke, which is expected to clear by Thursday morning,  is the result of a prescribed burn being carried out near Jarrahdale.

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.
