As the bushfires in Perth's south east and north east are still burning out of control, the Asthma Foundation WA would like to remind people to be cautious of any exposure to smoke.
Smoke from bushfires can pose a serious risk to people with respiratory conditions including asthma.
The Asthma Foundation WA has prepared an information sheet on how to deal with bushfire smoke. Download it here.
The Foundation urges anyone with asthma to carry their reliever medication with them all times.
