There are currently no planned hazard reduction burns for the City of Rockingham.
Information on planned burns
The City is responsible for the mitigation of bushfire risk on City-owned and managed land. Planned burning is used to achieve asset protection and biodiversity. Prescribed fires help reduce the catastrophic damage of wildfire on our lands and surrounding communities by safely reducing excessive amounts of brush, shrubs and trees.
Planned burning can only be done during favourable weather conditions and at this stage it is not possible to determine the exact dates of these planned burns. Information regarding the exact dates and time will be made available here and on the City's Facebook page 48 hours prior to a planned burn.
During the planned burn we recommend that you close windows and doors, keep laundry inside, do not operate air-conditioning units and avoid the location of the prescribed burn site.
People with asthma, pre-existing respiratory or other conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice and/or visit the Department of Health website for more information.
