It’s bushfire season, which means the burning of wood and bushland releases harmful gases, including carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, carbon dioxide and a range of organic compounds. This not only causes a threat to your home and the environment, but it also affects the air quality, irritating sensitive airways and triggers asthma. Children, the elderly, smokers and people with existing heart and lung condition, including asthma are usually the first to feel the effects of bushfire smoke and particle pollution. As a result, Australia Wide First Aid encourage you to take extra care the during summer/bushfire season.
