🚧 There could be smoke around this weekend due to hazard reduction burns.

☀️ The NSW RFS says they'll monitor weather conditions to determine if the burns go ahead.

🚒 Only call Triple O if you see an unattended fire with flames 🔥 and no fire trucks 🚒

NSW Rural Fire Service
Controlled hazard reduction burns will be conducted by NPWS, NSW RFS and FRNSW firefighters over the coming days, weather permitting, in areas across NSW including Cessnock, the Shoalhaven and parts of the Sydney region including Faulconbridge, Hornsby, Northern Beaches and Wollondilly.

With forecast light winds, smoke from these burns is likely to settle across parts including the Greater Sydney region, the lower Blue Mountains and Central Coast.

These are important controlled burns which will reduce the risk to people and properties from bush fires.

Motorists are reminded to drive to conditions, turn on headlights and take direction from fire crews working in the area.

Residents may notice smoke and we remind everyone to only call Triple Zero (000) if you see a fire without a fire truck in attendance.

Smoke from bush fires and hazard reduction burning can affect some people more than others.

NSW Health reminds people that children, older adults and people with heart and lung conditions are most susceptible to the effects of air pollution and excessive smoke.

If you have asthma or a lung condition, reduce outdoor activities if smoke levels are high and if shortness of breath or coughing develops, take your reliever medicine or seek medical advice.

Asthma sufferers need to follow their Asthma Action Plan and take their relieving medication where necessary. If symptoms get worse, seek medical advice. Further advice is available from the Asthma Foundation website.

Crews assess conditions right up to the moment planned burns are lit and continually monitor during operations. Details of planned hazard reduction burns are available here: www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/HR
