Routine fire training is scheduled for today from 7-9 this morning, and again next week on the 24th and 25th between the hours of 7 am and 11:30 am..
These fires are held in self-contained training facilities under controlled circumstances and are part of ongoing recurrent fire training and certification.
These fires may produce dark smoke in and around the airport area which has, in the past, caused concern from local residents resulting in increased call volumes to fire and police.
The training is scheduled to go ahead unless there is lightning in the area.
