Kaligtasan sa Wildfire

Sinusubaybayan ng Distrito ng Hangin ang pangkalahatang kalidad ng hangin sa Bay Area at aabisuhan nito ang publiko kung mukhang nagsasanhi ang usok ng wildfire ng matataas na antas ng polusyon ng particulate sa rehiyon. 

Wildfire Safety Tips

Stay aware of local news coverage or health warnings related to smoke. Use common sense. If it looks smoky outside, avoid physical outside activities and don't let your children play outdoors. 

If you are advised to stay indoors, keep indoor air as clean as possible. Keep your windows and doors closed unless it's extremely hot outside. If you don't have an air conditioner, staying inside with the windows closed may be dangerous in extremely hot weather. In these cases, seek alternative shelter. 

Run your home or car air conditioner on recycle or recirculate. Keep the fresh air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent bringing additional smoke inside. 

If you have asthma or other lung disease, make sure you follow your doctor's directions about taking your medicines and following your asthma management plan. Call your doctor if your symptoms worsen. 

If you have heart or lung disease, if you are an older adult, or if you have children, talk with your doctor about whether and when you should leave the area.
