Abstract/Description

Recently California has experienced the most devastating wildfires in state history. October 2017 and October of 2018 demonstrate how costly and destructive the impact was on communities. Studies and research reveal information on health effects from urban fires linked to asthma, women who are pregnant, and hospitalizations. The focus is to better understand the urban acute health effects from wildfires on communities. The results will be expressed using Geo-Spatial-Analysis of acute health effects- 2016 by county.
