Camfil Rallies Global Taskforce to Combat Wildfire Air Pollution

Published June 16, 2023

As wildfires continue to rage across the United States, air quality remains a pressing concern for millions. Recognizing this escalating issue, Camfil, a world leader in air filtration solutions, has assembled a global task force of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) specialists to mitigate the risks and impacts of wildfire air pollution on humans and buildings.

Wildfire season is intensifying, posing grave health hazards not only to those in the immediate vicinity but also to people across the country. The wildfire smoke, carrying an array of harmful pollutants, can travel hundreds or even thousands of miles, causing hazy conditions and compromised air quality far from the fire's source.

"Wildfires primarily affect the west coast and northern states in the United States," says Mark Davidson, Manager of Marketing and Technical Materials at Camfil USA. "However, the smoke from these fires can be carried far and wide by the wind, leading to poor air quality even thousands of miles away."

The task force will focus on providing resources and expert advice to the public, addressing key questions:

  • What pollutants are found in wildfire smoke?

  • Who can be affected by wildfire smoke?

  • How does wildfire smoke impact respiratory health?

  • What steps can be taken to stay healthy during the wildfire season?
