Wildfire season is in full swing in the United States, with 2,765,545 acres burning across 11 states as of July 27, 2022. In addition to the direct danger wildfires present to those living in the vicinity, wildfire smoke poses health hazards to people all over the country. In a new resource, air quality experts from global air filtration leader Camfil explain the health risks stemming from wildfire smoke and how to minimize exposure.
"In the United States, wildfires primarily affect the west coast and northern states," says Mark Davidson, Manager of Marketing and Technical Materials at Camfil US, "However, wildfire smoke can be carried hundreds and even thousands of miles by the wind, causing hazy conditions and poor air quality far away from the site of the fire."
The resource explains the details of the following questions:
- What pollutants are found in wildfire smoke?
- Who can be affected by wildfire smoke?
- How does wildfire smoke affect respiratory health?
- What steps can be taken to stay healthy during wildfire season?
