Dense Smoke Advisory: Prepare Clean Air Spaces
Posted: Thursday, September 10, 2020

Smoke from regional wildfires is predicted to move in to our area this evening. Hazardous smoke levels are predicted through the evening and night. We recommend the following precautions:
  • Keeps windows and doors closed. Minimize opening doors to the outside and avoid using doors into your main living space.
  • Use a HEPA-grade air purifier if you have one. If you have centrail air conditioning or home fan systems, use a high-grade MERV filter (MERV 13 or higher if possible).
  • Avoid outdoor activity and trips out of the home. When you have to go out, wear an N95, P100, or KN95 rated mask if you already have one.
  • If you canít purify air throughout your home, designate a room away from outside doors as a clean air space and prioritize sleeping areas. Stand-alone air purifiers can be moved from room to room.
  • Visit www.smokewiseashland.org to learn more about smoke and health.
