              Smoke Alert for Walpole to Denmark in the shires of Manjimup and Denmark

              The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Walpole to Denmark in the shires of Manjimup and Denmark.

              The smoke is the result of a Parks and Wildlife Service prescribed burn being carried out 20km west of Walpole. Smoke is expected to clear overnight.

              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.
