The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Perth to Albany and surrounds in the Perth metropolitan area, South West and South Coast.

The smoke is due to a combination of Parks and Wildlife Service prescribed burns and private property burns. An extended period of calm conditions has resulted in smoke haze persisting across large areas. The smoke is expected to clear by tomorrow morning.

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.
