Hazard reduction burns

As part of Redland City Council’s ongoing fire management program two hazard reduction burns are scheduled to take place this week.

Weather permitting the following planned burns will take place:
Orchid Drive Urban Park, Mt Cotton:
Tuesday, 26 May: 6pm -12pm. 
Note this burn has been scheduled at night to avoid traffic interruptions.

Greater Glider Conservation Area, Alexandra Hills:
Thursday, 28 May: 9am – 4pm.

The planned burns are necessary to lessen the potential for fire by reducing fuel loads and to allow for the regeneration of native plant species.

The planned burns will only be undertaken if weather conditions are favourable and all attempts will be made to limit any smoke hazards from the work.

Anyone suffering from asthma or other respiratory conditions is encouraged to keep doors and windows closed and minimise their time outdoors.

For safety reasons residents are asked to stay away from the planned burn area during the works, preferably indoors. 

To lessen the impact on pets it is also recommended they are secured prior to the works beginning.
