Parks Managing Smoke from Planned Burns document:

"Impacts on populated areas are avoided if possible, particularly in conditions that would lead to high levels of smoke impacting on communities for more than a few hours."
There is no safe level of fine particle pollution. Smoke of any duration or intensity is known to be harmful; and especially harmful to vunerable groups. This 'few hours' goes against the World Health Organisations findings that air pollution in its entirety causes cancer.
Parks and Wilfe smoke can be in addition to other agencies smoke.

The Co-ordinated Smoke Management Strategy (CSMS) allows for the maximum amount of smoke to be put into an airshed on a given day.
It does not allow for smoke from previous days burns in the calculations by any of it's voluntary participating members, or smoke from other outdoor burning.
