The Wildfire Toolkit
What's Included in this Toolkit
Did you know that schools and businesses in wildfire areas might be able to use government funding to purchase air purifiers for classrooms and facilities? Contact an Austin Air Clean Air Counselor for more information.
A recent study from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, found that smoke from wildfires can be up to 10 times more dangerous than other types of pollution, even traffic emissions.
Cleanup & Remediation
There are two main ways to clean up wildfire smoke. The first is surface cleaning. The second is air cleaning. And this is important information even for those who live far away from where the actual wildfires are burning.
Who is Affected
Contrary to popular opinion, it's not just the areas immediately surrounding wildfires that are affected by the smoke and pollution. The tiny particles from wildfires can travel huge distances and affect people in far-off locations.

Prepare Before A Wildfire Strikes
A Real Testimonial!
Reduced smells in the house from outdoor pollutants (wildfires, gas station, etc) and maintained a clean breathing environment for my son with allergies.
House smells wonderful even though we have an older very large dog and burn a wood stove all winter long. I have not had a single sinus problem since owning it. We live at high altitude and I am on oxygen and even during a recent forest fire I was able to go into the room with the machine and breathe easily.
It was subtle but it became very evident when a nearby wildland fire brought tons of smoke to the area. My house had clean air as opposed to my friends who didn't have my air purifier! It was great.
The air is always crystal clear, fresh and easy to breathe! It's truly wonderful to use and always know that the air in my bedroom is fresh and clean. I live in Salt Lake City which has TERRIBLE air quality in the winter, and wildfire smoke in the summer.
After the 2017 fires in California, I was never more thankful to have my Austin Air purifier! With a rescue cockatiel also sharing the household, the Austin Air was operating on high constantly during the terrible period of wild fires. Then, two years ago, the fires returned and I was evacuated twice in one year from my home. Through this, my Austin Air purifier has saved the day.
When there is wildfire smoke in my area I am able to stay in my home and don’t have to leave. Makes a huge difference. Also having a clean bedroom to sleep in is life-saving.
Once I began to use this miraculous device, the smoke cleared indoors entirely and we had found our refuge!!! No smoke!
The biggest difference is there is no smell from fumes, pretty amazing considering we were in a two bedroom condo. We have since used it during wildfire season and our home is free from the pervasive smoke smell.
