Vasse Highway smoke alert

The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Vasse Highway between Jarrahwood and Nannup in the Shire of Nannup

The smoke is the result of Parks and Wildlife Service prescribed burns carried out yesterday. It is expected to clear by mid-morning today.

WHAT TO DO:

If the smoke is particularly thick, it is recommended people shut doors and windows and turn off air-conditioners.

Smoke may reduce visibility on some roads and motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds when travelling in these areas.

People with asthma and pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses should follow their pre-prepared treatment plan.

People with conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice for these circumstances.
