17 Dec Dealing with Bushfire Ash in Your Public Space
The devastating bushfires raging throughout New South Wales have shrouded Sydney in smoke, and coated it in ash.
Concrete surfaces all over the city are covered in ash, including public spaces.
Unfortunately, this ash can pose a serious health risk. Moreover, it can become an eyesore, driving people away from community areas.
The dangers of ash are very real, and therefore it should be dealt with as soon as possible.
The Dangers of Ash
Ash is a harmful byproduct of bushfires, and can damage the respiratory system.
The common symptoms of inhaling ash can include coughing, irritation of the throat and sinuses, shortness of breath and chest pains.
Further indicators of breathing ash are headaches, irritated eyes and a runny nose.
As well as this, existing respiratory issues such as asthma and bronchitis can become much worse with the presence of ash.
This includes not just airborne ash, but particles that sit on surfaces, such as the concrete surfaces of a public space.
On an even more serious note, people with chronic lung and heart disease can experience more concerning symptoms.
For instance, shortness of breath, chest tightness, pain in the neck, shoulder or arm, palpitations, unusual fatigue or lightheadedness.
Therefore, it’s imperative that you take measures to remove the ash build up in your public space. Protect your community, and remove this health risk.
