Health Recommendations for Wildfire Smoke

Smoke from wildfires can cause problems for those with respiratory and cardiac disease as well as the very young and elderly.

Most symptoms are short-term and resolve as smoke dissipates.

For vulnerable populations in smoky areas, general recommendations are:

  • Make sure you have taken your medications as prescribed
  • Stay indoors
  • Limit exercise
  • Consider leaving the area if smoke is making you sick.
