Clean Air - Healthy Homes
Community learning for resilient living
Indoor air and community health
Every day, we are learning more about the importance of access to clean, indoor air during wildfire season. This work is aimed to develop a Wildfire Smoke Ready Missoula. Clean Air - Healthy Homes will strengthen local climate resilience and long-term health equity through engagement, education and empowerment by utilizing community learning.
By hearing from Indigenous residents, folks living in underserved neighborhoods and community groups across Missoula, we hope to assess the community understanding of the health impacts of wildfire smoke, identify existing ways of adapting to smoky conditions, potential barriers to staying healthy, co-create an action plan, and offer education and free portable HEPA air cleaners to reduce indoor air pollution, ensuring residents can thrive even with smoke or other indoor pollutants.
