Every year we see increasingly large and frequent wildfires that hit closer to densely populated urban centers, like the heart wrenching Woolsey fire still currently burning, the smoke they produce is becoming a public health crisis. Furthermore, its also becoming the new “ abnormal” ( as the LA Times penned this week), every year we residents of California are faced with the same heartbreaking reality.
If your nearby communities are facing less than ideal air quality levelsthere are things you can and should do to protect yourself and to protect, especially, young children and babies, pregnant women and people with respiratory issues.
1. Stay indoors if your local air quality is poor
2. Get an snug fitting N95 Mask if you have to be outdoors
3. Buy an air purifier for your indoor air.
Alas, not all air purifiers are created equal. I have done extensive research and the units I mention in today's blog post are my recommendations. Sometimes the most aesthetically stylish air purifiers being mentioned in social media have no scientific backing to what they claim they can do. When making an investment like this for your health make sure you pay attention to independent testing more than how a purifier looks. I hope this guide helps make living through this new reality a bit less stressful for my fellow Californians. Phtot credit: @alexkruk
