Protect Your Health From Wildfire Smoke Exposure
Wildfire season is here and with it came the smoke. Wildfire smoke creates tiny particles in the air that can cause health concerns such as coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, eye irritation, Asthma attacks, sore throats, and headaches. Those with heart and lung issues, children, pregnant women, adults age 65 and older, and smokers may feel the effects of wildfire smoke exposure the most. Protect your health when smoke is in the air by limiting your time outside, close the windows and doors when possible, set your air conditioner to recirculate, and drink plenty of water. For more information on protecting yourself from wildfire smoke exposure visit https://www.cdc.gov/air/wildfire-smoke/default.htm.
