NSW Rural Fire Service has advised they have scheduled a hazard reduction burn for 2839 MACLEAY VALLEY WAY BARRAGANYATTI NSW 2441 on the 22-23 June 2023.
This will involve prescribed burning of vegetation to minimise bushfire fuel and mitigate the impact of potential bushfires during extreme weather conditions.
As the prescribed burn will generate smoke, hot embers and heat, it is important that you:
- Keep doors and windows closed to prevent smoke from entering your homes.
- Protect outdoor furniture from ember burns by covering it.
- Remove pool covers to prevent damage from embers.
- Take down washing from clotheslines.
- Provide a protected area for your pets.
- When driving, slow down, keep windows up, and turn on headlights.
- If you have asthma or a lung condition, limit outdoor activities. Seek medical advice if you experience breathing difficulties due to smoke.
