Wildfire Smoke Factsheet: Protecting Children from Wildfire Smoke and Ash   [open pdf - 498KB]

From the Document: "[1] Children are especially at risk for health effects from exposure to wildfire smoke and ash, mostly because their lungs are still growing. [2] Wildfire concerns include the fire itself, the smoke and ash, and the chemicals from materials that have burned, such as furniture. [3] Smoke can travel hundreds of miles from the source of a fire. Pay attention to local air quality reports during fire season, even if no fire is nearby."
