Burn aims to min­imise bush­fires

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

JOON­DALUP photographer Josh Tucker used a drone to cap­ture pic­tures of a pre­scribed burn in Wan­neroo last Wednes­day.

Crews from the City of Wan­neroo Fire Ser­vices, Depart­ment of Parks and Wildlife (DPAW) and Joon­dalup Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice un­der­took the con­trolled burn at Yel­lagonga Re­gional Park near Ash­ley Road.

Pre­scribed burns aim to min­imise the im­pact of bush­fires and DPAW en­cour­ages peo­ple to take pre­cau­tions if smoke af­fects their health, or vis­i­bil­ity for mo­torists in the area. Visit www.dpaw.wa.gov.au.
