Hazard Reduction Burns Scheduled for Springwood and Lawson

Source: NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS)
Archived 17 Jul 2018 - Posted: 18 May 2018
A hazard reduction burn is planned for this weekend in Springwood, between Bee Farm Road and Burns Road extending south to Glenbrook Creek. A smaller burn is also planned for Ridge Road Lawson at the old Lawson tip site.

The burns are expected to take place between Saturday 19th and Monday 21st May, weather permitting.

If you are in the local area you might consider taking the following precautions:

  • Keep doors, skylights and windows closed to prevent smoke and embers entering homes
  • Keep outdoor furniture under cover to prevent ember burns
  • Retract pool covers to prevent ember damage
  • Remove washing from clotheslines
  • Ensure pets have a protected area
  • If you are driving, slow down, keep windows up and turn headlights on
  • If you have asthma or a lung condition, reduce outdoor activities, if smoke levels are high and if shortness of breath or coughing develops, take your reliever medication or seek medical advice.

Avoid approaching this area for some time after the hazard reduction as there may be falling limbs and trees as well as hot ash. Consult your local brigade for advice on conditions.

For health information relating to smoke from bush fires and hazard reduction burning, visit NSW Health or the Asthma Foundation. For more information about hazard reduction, refer to RFS NSW or the NSW RFS Fires Near Me app.

Update 18 May 2015 - a burn is also planned at Korowal School on 20th May.
Korowal School east of Queens Road between Sulman Road, Alpine Avenue, Hilltop Crescent and Binowee Drive, Hazelbrook.
