Today is “Smoke Ready Communities” Day  

This spring has already been warm and dry, creating ideal conditions for wildfires across our state this summer and fall. The last two years, the Puget Sound region dealt with poor air quality for weeks due to wildfire smoke, and forecasters expect another summer of smoky skies. King County Executive Dow Constantine has declared today to be Smoke Ready Communities Day, a day of awareness about the danger of wildfires and the associated smoke. Prepare now so you’re ready when conditions take a turn for the worse. 

King County is partnering with the City of Seattle, the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, and other regional stakeholders to help our communities prepare for and function during what is expected to be another summer of skies filled with wildfire smoke.
