Wildfire smoke is becoming more common, as are poor air quality days from smog, human pollution and other causes. Kim Menounos from Prince George Air Improvement Roundable (PGAIR) will kick of our event with a bit of a comparison between approaches to air quality monitoring in British Columbia and Alberta, as well as projects that PGAIR has undertaken to mitigate the impacts of wildfire smoke in the area. Jill Bloor from Calgary Region Airshed Zone (CRAZ) will share information about their guide to wildfire smoke. Gary Redmond from West Central Airshed and Alberta Capital Airshed will conclude speaker presentations with information about poor air quality events in the two Airsheds. He will also propose opportunities for municipal and multi-stakeholder collaboration towards mitigating the human impacts of poor air quality event days in the region.
