Exposure to wildland fire smoke is a community health issue that has gained the attention of public health professionals and organizations, especially in states where fires are becoming more frequent and intense. Emissions from wildland fire smoke has significant health implications for those nearby as well as those living farther downwind of the smoke. The US Environmental Protection Agency offers a suite of wildland fire resources that can assist with development of health risk communications strategies to improve public health outcomes.
The resources can be found on the Agency’s online Smoke Ready Toolbox for Wildland Fires at https://www.epa.gov/air-research/smoke-ready-toolbox-wildfires.
This webinar will provide an overview of these resources. EPA is interested in hearing participants’ feedback on these resources.
