SmoC Air Quality and Fire Issues
The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) is an operational group designed to coordinate programs of the participating wildfire management agencies. The Smoke Committee (SmoC) has been established by NWCG to provide interagency leadership, coordination and integration of air resource and fire management objectives to support overall land management goals. Air quality is critical to human health and welfare. Fire is an important disturbance process in many wildland ecosystems. The Smoke Committee strives to support successful management and utilization of wildland fire while appropriately addressing smoke impacts, for public health, welfare and safety.
