As much as possible everyone should limit their time outdoors especially if the smell of smoke is present. Protect your health by following these healthy habits:
- If possible, seek shelter in buildings with filtered air OR move to areas outside the region less impacted by wildfire smoke until smoke levels subside.
- Reduce exposure to smoky air by keeping your windows and doors closed unless it’s extremely hot outside.
- Set air conditioning units and car vent systems to re-circulate to prevent outside air from moving inside.
- Run your home or car air conditioner on recycle or recirculate. Keep the fresh air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent bringing additional smoke inside.
- Because of the serious air quality conditions, residents should avoid adding additional air pollution by curtailing wood burning, lawn mowing and leaf blowing, driving and barbecuing.
There is no clear evidence that N-95 respirator mask use by members of the general public is beneficial to an individual’s health during wildfire smoke air quality events, and there could be harms. If you have questions about the personal use of N-95 respirator masks please contact your physician.
