Wildfires & Filtration

As wildfire season approaches, it's crucial to remember that indoor air quality can be significantly impacted by outdoor smoke and pollutants. With wildfires becoming more frequent and intense, taking steps to ensure clean indoor air is paramount for our health and well-being. 

  • Install High-Efficiency Air Filtration Systems: Invest in high-quality air filtration systems, such as HEPA filters, to capture fine particles and smoke from wildfire pollution. These systems can help maintain clean indoor air and reduce the risk of respiratory issues among patients, students, and staff. 

  • Keep Windows and Doors Closed: During periods of high wildfire activity, keep windows and doors closed to prevent outdoor smoke from infiltrating indoor spaces. Sealing gaps and cracks in windows and doors can further minimize the entry of pollutants into the building. 

  • Monitor Indoor Air Quality: Implement a system for monitoring indoor air quality levels, including particulate matter concentrations and air pollutant levels. This real-time monitoring can help identify any spikes in pollution levels and prompt appropriate responses, such as adjusting ventilation systems or relocating sensitive individuals to cleaner indoor areas. 

  • Promote Indoor Ventilation: Ensure that ventilation systems are properly maintained and operated to facilitate adequate airflow and circulation of clean air throughout the building. Increasing ventilation rates when outdoor air quality improves can help flush out pollutants and maintain indoor air quality. 

  • Provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Equip healthcare workers and staff with appropriate personal protective equipment, such as N95 respirators or masks, especially for those who need to spend extended periods of time outdoors or in areas with poor indoor air quality. Educate individuals on proper usage and disposal of PPE to maximize effectiveness.  

By taking proactive measures, we can help minimize the impact of wildfire smoke on our indoor environments and protect our health. Remember, clean indoor air is essential, especially during wildfire season. Stay safe and breathe easy!
