Prescribed Fire Smoke and Community Health- Successes from smoke ready communities

Prescribed Fire Smoke and Community Health: Successes from Smoke Ready Communities

Recorded Wednesday June 23, 2021

Smoke from controlled burns or “prescribed fires” is still smoke. It may be less smoke, over days instead of weeks or months, but it can still be intrusive. Join us for an interactive, informational webinar to learn from four communities that are directly addressing this impact through communication and messaging efforts that help communities, especially sensitive and vulnerable populations, prepare to receive and live through smoke events.

Smoke impacts are increasing across the west. Many communities are wrangling with how to address this intrusive element, especially among sensitive and vulnerable populations.  HEPA filters are a proven mitigation tool but for many, these filters are out of reach due to a variety of circumstances.  Join us on April 6th to hear from four communities pioneering HEPA filter programs for community members unable to purchase them.

Prescribed Burn Associations: Different Models for Different Places
