SmokeMatters Toolkit

What is the SmokeMatters Toolkit?

The SMOKEMatters toolkit is a pre-assembled set of 6 different tools that promote home health and safety during wildfire events by educating and engaging residents. It includes culturally-tailored messages designed to engage residents, giving them cues on how to protect themselves from health and safety hazards caused by wildfires. The tools in the kit either measure or control and abate Carbon Monoxide and PM2.5 contamination, and target behaviors that are feasible and within a resident’s locus of control, such as filtration, dust mitigation, and insulation. 

The kit is not intended to replace the evidence-based practices that are the national standard for outreach, including the “Asthma Home Visit” model, or the “Healthy Home Checklist”. Rather, the kit is intended to advance the efficacy of these practices, by moving residents along the continuum from education to empowerment, and from knowledge to action. These kits can be customized with specific tools for your residents and families.
