“After the Fire”. Synergist Article Discusses Potential Risks of Wildfire Residues in the Indoor Environment

AIHA-200x72

A new article in the August 2016 issue of The Synergist addresses the potential human health effects of wildfire smoke and residues. The article illustrates some of the uncertainties that must be addressed when evaluating human health risk from wildfire residuals, including the composition of the wildfire smoke inside a home; concentration of chemical constituents in the smoke; fate and transport of persistent wildfire residual chemicals in the interior environment; and the effects of ventilation and housekeeping practices on contaminant deposition and removal rates.  The Synergist is the monthly magazine of the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
