Reduce Your Exposure to Harmful Wildfire Smoke

Wildfire smoke is a complex mix of gases and particles. When these harmful particles get in your eyes and lungs, they can cause minor to serious health effects. Sensitive groups, like infants, children, and individuals 65+, usually see greater impacts. Pets can also be impacted by smoke exposure. While the Spokane area typically does not see wildfire smoke until August, it is important to know how it can affect you, and how to avoid it. Reducing your exposure to smoke is key to prioritizing your health and the health of those in your care.

Tips to reduce your exposure to wildfire smoke:

  • Stay up-to-date on the current Air Quality Index (AQI.) This index is updated every hour to include the most recent monitoring data.
  • Know how smoke affects you and be aware of common exposure symptoms. Wildfire smoke might affect sensitive groups more severely than others.
  • Learn how to reduce exposure to smoke. There are steps you can take to minimize the impact of wildfire smoke in your home.

Summer Ozone Season

Summer is in full swing and so is the heat. When temperatures reach the 90s, ground-level ozone pollution is likely elevated, too.
