TIPS FOR REDUCING EXPOSURE IN WILDFIRE SMOKE

  • Limit your exposure to wildfire smoke.
  • Reduce time spent outdoors.¬†This can usually provide some protection, especially in a tightly closed, air-conditioned house. Set your A/C to recycle or recirculate, when at home or in your car, to limit your exposure.
  • Reduce the time you engage in vigorous outdoor activity. It can be an important, effective way to lower the amount of smoke you are breathing in. It can minimize health risks during a smoke event.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water.
  • Reduce other sources of indoor smoke and dust. These can be burning cigarettes, candles, gas, propane and wood-burning stoves and furnaces, and vacuuming.
