Preparing for Wildland Fire Smoke Webinar Archive
This webinar, recorded on May 18th, 2022, covers preparing for wildland fire smoke that can infiltrate indoors, highlighting the ASHRAE Planning Framework for Protecting Commercial Building Occupants from Smoke During Wildfires. The Planning Framework is a publicly available resource developed by government and industry experts that provides building managers for public and commercial buildings, including schools, with advice on steps to reduce smoke exposures that can occur indoors during wildfires and prescribed burning.
In addition, EPA researchers share examples from field studies in Missoula, MT and the Hoopa Valley Tribe in Hoopa, CA to better understand indoor air quality in public and commercial buildings under typical ambient conditions and when smoke events occur.
