It’s Fire Season again!
Take precautions to protect your health and that of your family
-Avoid outdoor activities and any strenuous workouts, even if you are healthy.
-Close windows or doors in your house or car.
-Keep air conditioning in the home and in the car on “re-cycled” air so that smoke is not drawn in from the outside.
-Refrain from running your swamp cooler or whole house fan, as they will pull unfiltered outside air into the house.
-If your home becomes too hot, consider leaving your home and visiting an indoor mall, library, or a friend or relative’s house that has air conditioning.
-Monitor family members who are elderly, pregnant or very young for any difficulty breathing and contacting their medical provider with any questions.
-Make sure family members with heart disease or lung problems such as asthma, bronchitis or emphysema, are following their doctor’s advice about medicines and about their respiratory management plan. Call the doctor if your symptoms worsen.
**Children are more likely to be affected by health threats from smoke because their airways are still developing and because they breathe more air per pound of body weight than adults. Children also are more likely to be active outdoors.**
