We recommend everyone take measures to avoid the forest fire smoke as much as possible by staying indoors with air conditioners set on recirculation setting and reducing outdoor activities. We also are warning against burning of all materials.
If you have lung disease, please monitor your breathing. Those with asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) should take extra precaution and care. Have your medication prescriptions up-to-date and filled. Carry your rescue inhalers with you at all times.
