Wood Smoke Stories

Wood smoke affecting breathing

I am one of those in the sensitive group. I am down to 52% of lung function due to environmental factors and disease. When I try to get out and walk up LCC for some fresh air and exercise I have to turn around part way up as the wood smoke begins to affect my breathing.

What I don’t understand is that as soon as the air quality turns green people begin to make it worse by burning wood. Then people like me can’t get out to enjoy those days either. This issue is my biggest concern with air quality.
