7/8/2013 Wildfire Season is Here
Summer brings hot days, thunderstorms, and the potential for wildfires. We have already seen a few human-caused fires in Omak, Yakima, and Kennewick. If a large wildfire with serious smoke impacts occurs, we will begin posting smoke and air quality updates to this blog.
In the meantime, the Washington State Department of Health just came out with some new guidance for schools on how to deal with air pollution and wildfire smoke. School’s out for now, but it’s a good idea to review what to do now so you can be ready in the fall. You can find the guidance on the DOH website here: Air Pollution and School Activities
If you have any questions please leave them in the comments section and we will answer them.
