Federal, State and Local Wildfire and Wood Smoke Resources


Each year, wildfires burn as many as 7 million acres of federal, state, tribal and private land. Smoke from these fires, particularly the fine particles released during combustion, can cause serious health problems. To protect the public from this threat, air pollution control, public health, and other federal, state and local agencies have developed resources to inform citizens where wildfires are burning and how smoke from those fired can affect them. A selection of those resources is included here.
