We are all saddened by the devastating impact of these terrible fires raging across Australia. Whilst we may not be directly impacted here in inner city Richmond, the resulting smoke haze and poor air quality can have significant effects on your health and breathing. It is important to be aware of the symptoms and steps you can take to protect yourself, your family and even your pets.
We acknowledge the emotional and psychological impact of these fires is wide ranging and may even effect those not directly impacted. Please remember your mental and emotional wellbeing is important, please talk to your health professional about any concerns
Whilst our hearts break for those directly affected we take comfort in the stories of strength, hope and community spirit of all Australians.
