Wildfire smoke advisory continues for northeast B.C.

The communities included in the advisory are Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, Fort Nelson and the surrounding areas.

“The forest fires causing the smoke fires are still active and periods of smoke my affect communities throughout the area,” a press release reads.

The ministry goes on to say smoke levels can change rapidly, and there may be large variations over short distances.

If you’re experiencing difficulty breathing, chest pain or discomfort, or a sudden onset of a cough/irritation of airways, contact your health care provider immediately. Also, avoid strenuous outdoor activity, especially along busy traffic corridors.

Exposure is of particular concern for infants, the elderly and those who have underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, lung, or heart disease.
