Bushfires & Smoke: Be Safe!

Bushfires are creating smokey conditions across mush of the State and this may continue for some time.  Smoke can effect people’s health and it is important for everyone to reduce exposure.

Please, where the smoke is bad, stay indoors if possible, use preventers or other prescribed medication as appropriate, minimise or cancel outdoor activities.  Most importantly, do not delay seeking medial assistance where necessary.

As the bushfires continue, information is available to provide you with up to date health information about bushfire smoke.
