The Department of Environment and Conservation is conducting a large number of prescribed burn-offs in WA’s South West at present.
These are essential for biodiversity management and strategic protection, and care is taken to ensure burn-offs occur under specified conditions to minimise potential harm, but none-the-less, smoke and haze from the burn-offs may trigger asthma if you are exposed to it.
The Department of Environment and Conservation publishes its daily burn program here
The Asthma Foundation WA reminds you to always carry your blue reliever puffer and spacer and to take measures to avoid the smoke as best you can if burn-offs are occurring in your area.
Information from our Asthma and Bushfires factsheet
may be helpful if you are in an area affected by smoke from burn offs.
If you have any questions about your asthma, please call 9289 3600 to speak to one of our trained asthma educators. This is a free service.
