Smoke-Ready Toolbox for Wildfires

Wildland fires produce air pollution that impacts people’s health and other aspects of daily life. The increased frequency and intensity of wildfires in the United States are adversely affecting air quality and putting more people at a health risk from exposure to smoke. Public health officials and others can use the resources in the Smoke Ready Toolbox to help educate the public about the risks of smoke exposure and actions people can take to protect their health.
