Effective Wood Smoke Communications Campaign

Effective Wood Smoke Communications Campaign How to Change Wood Burning Behaviors and Who to Target The Human Element the proper function of wood burning appliances is in the hands of the user. The knowledge level and attitude of the user will be reflected in the amount of smoke their wood heating activities produce.

a burn ban Not sure how to check Dont believe burning makes a difference Message Delivery Focus on heat and less work, versus health or air quality Find credible partners to share messages (fire officials or loggers)
