Prescribed Burn Advice

The Northern Territory Fire and Rescue Service are conducting Prescribed Burns in the Darwin/Rural area. The burns are expected to commence at approximately 9:00am every day and continue for most of the day, weather permitting.

When driving pay attention and if the roads are affected by smoke, turn on your lights and drive carefully. People suffering from asthma or breathing ailments should consider leaving for the day or staying indoors.

Asthma sufferers should take all precautions, if in doubt call the Asthma Foundation on 1800 278 462 for more information.
