Take steps to decrease your risk from wildfire smoke.
Check local air quality reports. Listen and watch for news or health warnings about smoke. Find out if your community provides reports about the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Quality Index (AQI) or check the report on AirNow.gov. In addition, pay attention to public health
messages about safety measures.
Consult local visibility guides. Some communities have monitors that measure the amount of particles in the air. In the western United States, some
states and communities have guidelines to help people determine if there are high levels of particulates in the air by how far they can see.
Keep indoor air as clean as possible if you are advised to stay indoors. Keep windows and doors closed. Run an air conditioner, but keep the fresh-air
intake closed and the filter clean to prevent outdoor smoke from getting inside. If you do not have an air conditioner and it is too warm to stay inside
with the windows closed, seek shelter in a designated evacuation center or away from the affected area. Learn more about reducing your smoke
exposure indoors.[819 KB]
Avoid activities that increase indoor pollution. Burning candles, fireplaces, or gas stoves can increase indoor pollution. Vacuuming stirs up
particles already inside your home, contributing to indoor pollution. Smoking also puts even more pollution into the air.
Follow the advice of your doctor or other healthcare provider about medicines and about your respiratory management plan if you have
asthma or another lung disease. Consider evacuating if you are having trouble breathing. Call your doctor for advice if your symptoms worsen.
Do not rely on dust masks for protection. Paper “comfort” or “dust” masks commonly found at hardware stores are designed to trap large particles,
such as sawdust. These masks will not protect your lungs from the small particles found in wildfire smoke. Read more on choosing and using
respirators to protect your lungs from smoke and ash.[321 KB]
