The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Research and Development hosted a web summit June 12-13, 2019, to share information about the effectiveness of air filtration to improve indoor air during wildland fire smoke events. The summit consisted of four topic-based sessions: Setting the Stage, Insights from Public Health Agencies, and State of Technology to Improve Air During High Outdoor Pollution Concentrations Part I and Part II. Each of the web summit’s four sessions contained engaging presentations and discussions regarding the health impacts of wildland fire smoke, community preparedness, and filtration methods to reduce indoor air pollution during smoke events.
Experts from EPA, other federal and state agencies and universities in indoor air quality provided a total of 15 presentations. The presentations are being made available on this web page as they become available.
