Smoke-Ready Communities During Severe Wildfires
Live webinar September 25: As severe wildfires and prolonged smoke events become more common, health departments are re-evaluating their role in addressing these issues. In the September session of Hot Topics in Practice, Sarah Coefield, MS, discusses how the Missoula City-County Health Department in Montana supported public health and safety during the exceptionally smoky summer of 2017.
In this one-hour webinar, Coefield will examine the major health concerns associated with wildfires, such as respiratory distress, and their impacts to the public health system. She will also review how her agency partnered with non-profits to counter these concerns by encouraging smoke-readiness and clean air spaces for individuals, schools, and businesses.
