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.
