ACT Rural Fire Service will be undertaking a hazard reduction burn at the Canberra Equestrian Centre off Eucumbene Drive in Rivett. This burn is scheduled to take place from 7pm on Thursday, 7 November weather permitting.

The ACT Handy Map grid reference for the burn is J14.

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.
