Wildfire Smoke Safety



Smoke from wildfires is affecting much of Washington State. If there is smoke present in your area, follow these recommendations:
  • Check news, social media and local reports for the latest air quality status.
  • Avoid physical activity outdoors when conditions are "unhealthy", "very unhealthy" or “hazardous.”
  • Keep doors and windows closed but be mindful of hot weather. Run air systems/AC on recirculate and the close fresh-air intake. Keep the air in your house clean.
  • You need to take extra care if you have a heart or lung condition, diabetes, are pregnant or over 65, as well as infants and children. Seek medical attention if the smoke is affecting your health.
