Be Prepared for the Wildfire
Large and intense wildfires create the potential for greater smoke production and chronic exposures in the U.S., particularly in the West. Remember the wildfire outbreak spread through the west coast last year? Tens of thousands of acres of land were burned, ash and smoke were everywhere. The sky was opaque for weeks and the heavy pollution lingered for months. Time flies, we are now in the middle of the wildfire season again. Let’s be proactive and prepared…
Wildfire Smoke are Toxic and Detrimental to Health
The effects of smoke from wildfires can range from eye and respiratory tract irritation to more serious disorders, including reduced lung function, bronchitis, exacerbation of asthma and heart failure, and premature death. Children, pregnant women, and the elderly are especially vulnerable to smoke exposure. Emissions from wildfires are known to cause increased visits to hospitals and clinics by those exposed to smoke.
If you already have chronical health issues related to respiratory, lung or heart, it’s important to limit your exposure to smoke – especially if you are at increased risk for particle-related effects.
