Wildfire smoke can affect your health
If you or someone you know has respiratory or heart conditions, such as asthma, symptoms can worsen during minor and severe smoke events. During severe smoke events even healthy individuals can be affected and may experience irritation of the eyes, throat and possibly shortness of breath.
Everyone – particularly those with pre-existing respiratory or heart conditions – should monitor their symptoms and seek medical care if symptoms worsen.
