Wildfires and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Guidance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

“During a wildfire, smoke can make the outdoor air unhealthy to breathe. Local officials may advise you to stay indoors during a smoke event. You should be aware that some of the smoke from outdoors can enter your home and make it unhealthy to breathe indoor air, too.” – EPA

Important Guidance on Worker Safety and Health in Wildfire Regions From Cal/OSHA

“Wildfire smoke and cleanup presents hazards that employers and workers in affected regions must understand. Smoke from wildfires contains chemicals, gases and fine particles that can harm health.
