The Climate Emergency is Here – Preparing for Summer Wildfire Smoke

Just as we cannot predict with 100% certainty that our region will be affected by a large scale blizzard, we cannot say for certain that our region will be affected by wildfire smoke as much as we were last year – but what we can say is that the Climate Emergency is here, now, and that we need to prepare for wildfire smoke emergencies just as much as we do for any potential weather emergency.

Our region has already begun to be affected by wildfire smoke this year, and will likely continue to be to some degree throughout the summer.

Here are several resources to bookmark or download to prep and protect your household.

Take Action

As advocates for environmental justice, we believe in taking action not only to protect ourselves and our community against the acute harms of climate change and extractive industries, but also to take action to combat the core causes for the climate crisis and fight for a Just Transition, which is one of the reasons Clean Air is a member of NY Renews and supports the Climate, Jobs and Justice bill package.

Our NY representatives from Western New York need to hear from you, because they are hearing from fossil fuel interests – take a moment to send a note in favor of the NY Heat Act and the Climate Superfund Act. The 2024 session is scheduled to end June 6.

If you are interested in getting further engaged with NY Renews through the Clean Air Coalition, please email Bridge.
