How can I reduce my risk of health problems during an air quality event?

  • Have enough medication and food on hand (enough for more than 5 days, if possible).
  • Follow your health care provider’s advice about what to do if you have heart or lung disease.
  • If you have asthma, follow your asthma management plan.
  • If you feel sick, reduce your exposure to smoke and contact your health care provider.
  • Pay attention to public service announcements, health advisories, and air quality advisories.
