BUSHFIRE SMOKE HEALTH ALERT

1. Bushfire smoke contains fine particle that may cause health effects.

2. People at greater risk from smoke include those with underlying lung or heart conditions, the elderly and young children.

3. People at greater risk should avoid outdoor physical activity when it is smoky and stay indoors as mych as possible with windows and doors closed. 

4. People with lung and heart conditions should adhere to their treatment plans and seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen.

5. Exposure to smoke will generally result in mild symptoms like sore eyes, nose and throat, and cough. However, it may exacerbate chronic lung and heart conditions, causing severe illness.

 

REDUCE EXPOSURE:

  • Avoid outdoor physical activity when you can see or smell smoke

  • Stay indoors with windows and doors closed when it is smoky. Sealing doors and windows with sheets or towels and setting air-conditioners to recirculate can be beneficial

  • Spend time in air conditioned public places like libraries and shopping centres

  • Take advantage of smoke-free periods to air out houses

  • Avoid using indoor sources of air pollution like candles and incense sticks

 

UP TO DATE AIR QUALITY INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE AT:

Face Masks - a well fitted P2 face mask may reduce exposure to fine particles. However, evidence suggests that these masks may not be effective in practice because it is difficult to achieve a good fit and maintain a seal around the face. Surgical masks are not effective against smoke.
