Wildfire smoke, public health & environmental justice: better decision-making with local air quality monitoring
How does wildfire smoke impact your community?
Local governments have been challenged to respond to unprecedented air pollution events caused by the wildfires burning across the western United States. A panel of experts will provide an overview of the impact wildfire smoke and other air pollution events have on cities and the communities they steward, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
Here's what you can expect to learn from this recorded event:
- What is known about the health impacts of wildfire smoke
- What local governments can do to better measure and manage air quality to protect at-risk populations
- Existing and emerging policy to mitigate public health impacts of poor air quality
- Other questions from the audience during the Q&A!
