The ACT Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) will today, Monday 10 September, 2012, conduct a controlled burn, weather permitting, at Cooleman Ridge Nature Reserve, off Kathner Street in Chapman.
Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burns in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.
The Health Directorate advises that people with asthma, other chronic respiratory and/or chronic cardiac diseases should not perform vigorous exercise and should stay inside if affected by the smoke. People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.
