Hazard Reduction burn in Capalaba: 7 July

As part of Redland City Council’s ongoing fire management program, a hazard reduction burn will take place today, Tuesday 7 July at 9am.

Swampbox Conservation Area: 87A Lyndon Road, Capalaba

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

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.
