Air Quality Monitoring for Wildfires

Plug-And-Play Solutions for Real-Time Dust Monitoring

Monitoring the air quality during and after a wildfire is important. Those working to contain the wildfire and those in the surrounding communities are often exposed to smoke, which can contain chemicals, gases and particulate matter (PM) that can be harmful to your health. Monitoring the air during cleanup efforts is also important, as toxic chemicals in the soil gets agitated and put back into the air.

If the PM in the air reaches a certain level, workers may need to be sent home, and the surrounding communities will need to be alerted. Having access to real-time, near-reference data allows you make those decisions to help keep your workers and the community safe.


DustTrak™ Environmental Monitors vs. Federal Reference Method (FRM/FEM) Equipment

TSI Incorporated, a world leader in dust monitoring, offers a variety of DustTrak™ Aerosol Monitors for conducting continuous, real-time monitoring. The Environmental DustTrak™ monitors can provide real-time data, which can assist emergency responders, environmental consultants and others make decisions on the smoke's direction, and which neighborhoods are affected in real-time. Typical Federal Reference Method/ Federal Equivalent Method (FRM/FEM) equipment reports data in 1-hour, 3-hour or 24-hour averages. TSI's DustTrak™ Environmental Monitor has the capability to report in 1-minute averages, so if your PM10 or PM2.5 particles exceed your preset levels on the instrument, alerts will be sent to your mobile device or desktop computer allowing you to make decisions to protect the community.

FRM/FEM devices also tend to be bulky and are generally used as fixed systems. The DustTrak™ family of products are highly mobile and easy to set up, making them the standard industry choice for emergency response situations like wildfires, where mobility is key.
