The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Denmark to Walpole and surrounds in the Shires of Denmark and Manjimup.
The smoke is a result of a prescribed burn being carried out today in Mount Roe National Park and is expected to clear overnight.
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.
