Wildfires in Western United States


During wildfire clean-up, questions will arise regarding proper PPE for the clean-up and restoration process. Below are 3M resources around cleanup safety.

Wildfire Cleanup

Personal protection in the aftermath of a wildfire is an important consideration during the cleanup process. Selection of Personal Safety and Protective Equipment depends on both anticipated hazards and the task to be performed.

If the general public makes a personal decision to use respirators against the soot and ash particles that result from wildfires, a government-certified particulate respirator, such as an N95, N99, N100 disposable respirator, can be used to help reduce wearer exposure to these particles.
