A wildfire, no matter how far you are from its source, can stir up feelings of worry in your community. Wildfire burns create excessive amounts of smoke, polluting the air outdoors for miles. And, since wildfires travel quickly, smoke can enter your home and impact the health of you and your family, creating long-term respiratory issues and aggravating current health conditions. Even if you are able to evacuate during a wildfire, there will still be lingering smoke in your indoor air after it’s been deemed safe to return.
"Because people in the U.S. and many other developed countries are indoors approximately 90% of the time, and may be indoors even more when outdoor air is affected by wildfires, increases in exposures to particles from wildfires attributable to climate change will occur primarily indoors." – IAQ Science
