Public Input Needed For Smoke Communication and Response Planning
Help the City of Ashland Enhance Smoke Communication
The City of Ashland and partners organizing with Smokewise Ashland are developing a Community Response Plan (CRP) for smoke. The CRP will provide:
A description of persons vulnerable to smoke
Planning options to protect the health of vulnerable populations short-term exposure to smoke
Means of communication & notification to the public about smoke impacts and air quality
A plan and program for communication between entities that conduct prescribed burns, the local public health authority, and the community's public and vulnerable populations who may be impacted by smoke.
As part of the planning process, the City of Ashland and partners in Smokewise Ashland would like your input on how we can improve our city-wide response during periods of smoke.
