The City of Greater Geraldton wishes to advise it will be undertaking two prescribed burns in Cape Burney on Saturday 14 April 2018 and Sunday 15 April 2018 commencing at approximately 9.00am.

The burns will take place at Lot X20 Brand Highway in Cape Burney.

The Cape Burney, Moonyoonooka and Waggrakine Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades will be on site to control the burn rate and extinguish the fire by the end of the day.

Smoke from this prescribed burn should been carried by prevailing winds out to sea, however it may affect the surrounding areas. If you have a respiratory condition or are affected by smoke you should contact your local doctor or call Health Direct on 1800 022 222.

Prescribed burns are undertaken by the City to mitigate the severity of bushfires by reducing the build-up of flammable fuel loads, which helps protect lives and property.

Members of the community are requested to exercise caution and obey all warning signs and directions from authorised City personnel and contractors.

The City apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
