Fire Season

July 11th, 2012

As you will notice if you look out your window today, a haze has settled into the Rogue Valley as a result of fires–mostly east of the Cascades based on current reports.
Asthmatics should be particularly careful with outdoor exercise or vigorous work during the warmest hours of the day, especially when we have wildfire smoke. Pre-treatment with your rescue medication may help, but the best strategy is to do outdoor work and exercise early in the day; and listen to your body. Although pollen season is coming to a close, wildfire season is just getting started.
