2015 Hazard Reduction Activity

The brigade is currently conducting hazard reduction burns within the Bedfordale Area as weather permits.

If you are nearby or passing a Hazard Reduction Burn please be cautious. There may be Firefighters and vehicles on the roads as well as wildlife on the move.

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

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

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

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

We will attempt to post specific information about each burn on our Facebook Page

Please remember that Burning Permits are required from 1 April to 31 May Inclusive. For more information contact the City of Armadale – COA Permits Link
