Googong burn goes on

By johnboy 23 November 2012 1

The ACT Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) is today, Friday 23 November 2012, continuing with a controlled burn, at Googong Foreshores.

The burn is approximately 50 hectares in size.

The ACT Handy Map grid reference for the burn is N16.

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.

For more details on the burn, visit or call Canberra Connect on 13 22 81.
