Prescribed Ecological Burn In Hall

A prescribed ecological burn at Hall Cemetery will commence today, subject to suitable weather and fuel moisture conditions.

The prescribed ecological burn at Hall Cemetery will help the growth of new grasslands and encourage the growth and re-sprouting of plants.

See the location map of the burn site.

Experienced ACT Parks and Conservation Service fire managers will conduct and oversee the burning operations. Every effort is made to conduct burns in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke, but temporary smoke cover is possible and may be visible across parts of Canberra.

The crews will be on the ground monitoring and patrolling the prescribed burn to its conclusion.

Some minor smoke and glowing embers may be seen at this site, which is normal for these types of operations. The public are asked not to call emergency triple-zero unless they see any unattended fire.

Prescribed burns are an important part of the ACT’s annual Bushfire Operations Plan to enhance ecological quality, reduce the risk of bushfires and help keep Canberrans safe.
