Here in BC we are all concerned with the state of our province and the forest fires. It is a major concern for all residents when we look out of our windows and see smokey haze not to mention the poor air quality.

It leaves one to wonder if this is natural selection or if there was something we could do as a province to prevent these disasters from happening or even prevent them from spreading so far? Neverthless fire prevention is always a safe practice particularly in the warm, dry months of the year.
A few tips provided by health experts on CBC.ca can assist you on how to stay safe in smoky air. Some tips include: staying inside avoiding strenuous activity, leave the mask at home (which can be counter productive), seek large air conditioned buildings, change your vehicles air filters.
For now, at Dang and Company Ltd. we are staying inside collectively hoping for the west coast wind and rain to douse our forests and put these wild fires out. If you have any tips for us or the public please comment below.
