Big Meadows Fire Prompts Wildfire Smoke Advisory For Larimer County

Big Meadows Smoke From Colorado/Wyoming Border – Matt Shilz, TSM

Last summer we all had more than enough smokey air to breath in Northern Colorado, and smoke blowing over the mountains from the Big Meadows fire is making some not-so-nice conditions for breathing in the Estes Park, Fort Collins, and Loveland areas.

Did you know you can check for smoke advisories and forecasts from Larimer County Department of Health and Environment?

Some of their advice for today, June 11th, 2013:

If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood consider remaining indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present. Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is making you ill.
Smoke from wildfires contains a mixture of fine particulates and gases that are produced when wood burns. Those fine particles can threaten your health and comfort with symptoms including burning eyes, runny nose, breathing difficulties and illnesses such as bronchitis. Fine particles can also aggravate chronic heart or lung diseases such as asthma. Click here for more detailed information.

You can check their site for more info and daily updates or follow them on Twitter.

Stay safe and breath easy. Let’s hope this wildfire season is not a bad one.
