This program provides a brief background on the California Wildfire Smoke Emergency Order, and associated regulation, along with key definitions. The Current Air Quality Index (Current AQI) and wildfire smoke hazards, including PM2.5, are covered as well as communication and training requirements. Hazard control methods are discussed in addition to an overview of personal protective equipment (PPE) with a focus on respiratory protection and the donning and doffing of respirators.

The California Wildfire Smoke Emergency Order is an emergency order set forth by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) Standards Board stating that employers must take new action to protect workers in the field from wildland fire smoke exposure.
