In BC, the past decade brought an era of unprecedented wildfire severity, and B.C. residents have intermittently experienced some of the world’s worst air quality as a result (3, 4). Wildfires are projected to continue and likely worsen into the future. Exposure to wildfire smoke has negative impacts of health, especially in those living with lung disease, cardiovascular disease, older adults, those who are pregnant, and children (5-7). Thus, as these exposures to wildfire smoke continue to rise, so do the short- and long-term effects, such that policy, public education, and protection from the smoke all become increasingly important.
