New Web Resources Help Californians Find Relief from Smoke and Prepare for Wildfires

Clean Air Centers Maps Shows Where to Find Relief from Wildfire Smoke: On June 24, the California Air Resources Board announced the launch of an interactive, statewide map that offers a one-stop-shop for information about the location and services available at Clean Air Centers. Clean Air Centers will offer Californians who don’t have access to adequate air filtration a safe place to go during periods of heavy smoke. Built in collaboration with local air quality control districts, the online map makes it possible to see where Clean Air Centers are located and provides easy-to-access information, including operating hours, contact information and on-site resources like free Wi-Fi.

 CAL FIRE Updates Wildfire Preparedness Website: In preparation for the fire year, CAL FIRE has updated the site. This one-stop-shop provides advice and guidance on everything from home hardening and defensible space, to what to pack for evacuation, to what California is doing to enhance and protect forest health.
