Smoke alert for Rockingham and Jarrahdale

PIC: The West Australian

A smoke alert has been issued for several southern suburbs including Jarrahdale and Rockingham. 

The smoke is the result of a number of prescribed burns being carried out today.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services WA said smoke will be visible until early morning tomorrow.

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.
