A smoke alert has been issued for Lane Poole Reserve and surrounds in the Shires of Murray and Waroona.
The smoke is due to a prescribed burn being carried out by the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions and may persist in the area for several days.
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.
