Are You Smoke Ready?
Wildfire smoke particles are tiny enough to bypass our body’s normal defenses, entering the lungs and blood stream. Smoke can hurt your eyes, irritate your respiratory system, and worsen chronic heart and lung diseases. The best way to protect yourself is to reduce your exposure to smoke.Our region has seen an increase in the number of unhealthy air quality days caused by wildfire smoke. During four of the last five years, smoke from wildfires resulted in 44 days of unhealthy air in the Spokane County metro area. Learn how you can help spread the word about preparing for smoke now. #SmokeReadySpokane
