Wildfires in Chelan and Douglas Counties Cause Air Quality Alert

Smoke from wildfires raging in the Chelan and Douglas counties in the state of Washington have caused the local Health District to issue an air quality alert. Residents with heart or lung conditions such as asthma or emphysema, along with children and the elderly, have been warned to avoid outdoor activity and remain indoors with windows and doors closed.

People who live in areas that have been affected by wildfires should consider furnishing their homes with an air purifier designed specifically to combat the dangers caused by reoccurring wildfires.

For more information on equipment designed specifically for wildfires, visit the AllerAir website to find out more about air cleaners designed with medical-grade HEPA technology that traps 99.97% of fine particles at 0.3 microns and deep bed carbon filters to adsorb gases, chemicals and tough smoke odor.
