Air Quality Advisory from Napa County
Smoke from wildfires and structure fires contain harmful chemicals that can affect your health. Smoke can cause eye and throat irritation, coughing, and difficulty breathing.
Contact your healthcare provider if you or someone in your care experience the following symptoms that may be related to excess smoke exposure include:
• Repeated coughing
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Chest tightness or pain
• Nausea or unusual fatigue
Groups at greater risk of experiencing symptoms due to smoke include:
• People with respiratory disease (such as asthma)
• People with heart disease
• Young children
• Older adults
Follow these general precautions to protect your health during a smoke event:
• Minimize or stop outdoor activities, especially exercise
• Stay indoors with windows and doors closed as much as possible
• Do not run fans that bring smoky outdoor air inside – examples include swamp coolers, whole-house fans, and fresh air ventilation systems
• Run your air-conditioner only if it does not bring smoke in from the outdoors. Change the standard air conditioner filter to a medium or high efficiency filter. If available, use the “re-circulate” or “recycle” setting on the unit
• Do not smoke, fry food, or do other things that will create indoor air pollution • Consider leaving the area until smoke conditions improve if you experience symptoms related to smoke exposure
