Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burn in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.

People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.

At least they’re warning this time, they decided to do a burn on both sides of the Cotter Road last Sunday too, when they should have known there was going to be a lot of traffic. Instead they just went ahead with it and put up tiny warning signs saying hazardous driving conditions ahead.
