Health Precautions Advised for Smoke in Air

San Andreas, CA....Smoke from fires burning in Northern California is affecting parts of Calaveras County
resulting in poor air quality that can be harmful to residents, especially persons who are more sensitive to the effects of smoke. The Calaveras County Public Health Division and Air Pollution Control District have classified the air quality as unhealthy for sensitive groups. The combination of extreme heat for several days and poor air quality from wildfire smoke can increase the risk of smoke related health effects. All persons who can see or smell smoke should avoid outdoor activities. Some people are more sensitive to the effects of smoke.





This includes:
 People with asthma and other respiratory diseases
 People with heart disease and high blood pressure
 Elderly People
 Children
 Pregnant Women
 People who smoke

Dr. Dean Kelaita, Calaveras County Health Officer, advises persons sensitive to the
effects of smoke should take the following actions:
 Stay indoors or limit time outdoors
 Keep house windows and doors closed
 Set air conditioners to re-circulate air if possible
 Limit physical activity and exertion
 Keep car windows closed; set air conditioning to re-circulate
 Follow your asthma management plan
 Reduce indoor air pollutants: Tobacco smoke, vacuuming, using paints or
solvents

People with heart or lung disease who experience repeated coughing, shortness of
breath, difficulty breathing, wheezing, chest tightness or pain should contact their doctor
or clinic. “If an existing illness gets worse due to smoke exposure, get medical
assistance” Dr. Kelaita emphasized. Fires and smoke may recur this summer. These
precautions should be followed whenever smoke can be seen or smelled.

Really? What about all the marijuana? Why not post about breathing skunk and drinking polluted water?

    Another idiot that can't read. Marijuana is not the issue today darling or remotely close to this health advisory. Please go outside with your dumb ass family during these bad days of air quality, suck it in hold it and keep doing that over and over alright. Some helpful advice to rid the world of pure ignorance, oh if you only had a brain.....

    Still not as bad as when they allow pine needles to be burned. Air quality is serious business

This is tough if your "air conditioning" is a swamp cooler.

Though it might seem back to nature, wood stoves are also among the worst for asthma sufferers. Something to think about come winter and even more confined spaces.

    Real question, why are asthma rates rising even as the air gets "cleaner"?
