              WHAT TO DO:
              • Stay alert and monitor your surroundings.
              • Watch for signs of a bushfire, especially smoke and flames.
              • Close all doors and windows, and turn off evaporative air conditioners but keep water running through the system if possible.
              • Read through your bushfire survival plan.
              • If you do not have a plan decide what you will do if the situation gets worse.

                BUSHFIRE BEHAVIOUR:

                • The bushfire is moving slowly in a westerly direction.
                • It is out of control and unpredictable.


                SAFEST ROUTE:
                If you plan to leave, leave in a southerly direction.


                ROAD CLOSURES AND CONDITIONS:

                Avoid the area and be aware of fire and emergency services personnel working on site.
                A number of roads have been closed including:

                • Railway Parade
                • Maralla Road in an easterly direction

                Motorists are asked to avoid the area, reduce speed and drive carefully due to smoke.

                Road information may also be available from Main Roads WA by calling 138 138 or visiting www.mainroads.wa.gov.au OR CITY OF SWAN.


                WHAT FIREFIGHTERS ARE DOING:

                • Firefighters are actively fighting the fire.
                • Career Fire and Rescue Service, Volunteer Fire and Emergency Services, Bush Fire Service firefighters are attending.
                • Aerial support has been sent to assist ground crews.

                DRONES AND AERIAL SUPPORT:
                Never fly a drone, model aircraft or multirotor near bushfires. Doing so poses a major safety risk to firefighting personnel in the air and on the ground, and forces aircraft to be grounded or redirected, hindering firefighting efforts.


                EXTRA INFORMATION:

                • The fire was reported at 10:50 AM on 12 November 2019.
                • City of Swan is managing the fire.

                The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Denmark to Walpole and surrounds in the Shires of Denmark and Manjimup.

                • If the smoke is particularly thick, it is recommended people shut doors and windows and turn off air-conditioners.
                • Smoke may reduce visibility on some roads and motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds when travelling in these areas.
                • People with asthma and pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses should follow their pre-prepared treatment plan.
