QPWS intend to conduct a planned burn in the bushland south of Rainbow Beach township (pictured) between now and September 2014, to help protect life and property in the event of a wildfire.
Exact dates cannot be given, as operations depend on suitable weather conditions. Where feasible, further notification will be given closer to the day of burning. Persons with respiratory or other health problems should seek medical advice on mitigating the effects of smoke inhalation.
Please read the QPWS fire management brochure at www.nprsr.qld.gov.au, from the QPWS Information Centre, Rainbow Beach or call 5486 9900 for more information.
