USEPA Wildfire Smoke Research, Toolbox, and Other Resources Webinar

Exposure to wildland fire smoke is a community health issue that has gained the attention of public health professionals and organizations, especially in states where fires are becoming more frequent and intense. Emissions from wildland fire smoke has significant health implications for those nearby as well as those living farther downwind of the smoke. The US Environmental Protection Agency offers a suite of wildland fire resources that can assist public health professionals with development of health risk communications strategies to improve public health outcomes especially among those at highest risk. These resources can be found on the Smoke Ready Toolbox for Wildland Fires at https://www.epa.gov/air-research/smoke-ready-toolbox-wildfires. This webinar will be hosted by the National Environmental Health Association and will provide an overview of these resources. EPA is interested in hearing participants’ feedback on these resources.

The webinar will take place on May 2, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern.
