Wildfire Smoke: A Guide for Public Health Officials


Wildfire smoke doesn’t always stay in the
forest. Every year smoke from wildfires drifts to
nearby cities and towns, where it can linger for many weeks. This smoke is unhealthy to breathe. You can reduce health risks by helping your
community be prepared when wildfire smoke arrives. “Wildfire Smoke: A Guide for Public Health
Officials,” tells you how. The guide contains a wealth of information
– including steps you can take in advance to help people of all ages in your community
stay healthy. Use the guide to learn more about: the health
effects of wildfire smoke, and who is most at risk, air quality conditions – and what
that means for your community, plus strategies for reducing smoke exposure. The guide can also help you decide when to
issue public health advisories, closures or evacuations to protect your community from
smoke. It even has information on steps for protecting
livestock and family pets. Scientific information in the guide helps
you know when to take steps to protect your residents – and steps they can take to protect
themselves. And the fact sheets that go with it make it
easy to communicate that information to the public. Wildfire smoke can impact a community without
warning. But everyone can take action now to be ready. Visit airnow.gov/wildfire-guide to learn more. [Music]
