Out of Control Wildfires & Toxic Ash

Blogs Where Nature Meets Science png

With wildfires raging out of control across the US & around the world, I feel it’s important to again emphasize that these fires leave behind toxic ash and hazardous material the needs to be safely dealt with.

The lost lives, destroyed lands and demolished homes have devastated the lives of so many which is terrible enough. But there is an underlying fact that the danger can continue long after the flames go out. Homes and buildings that have been destroyed by fires leave behind extremely toxic ash and hazardous debris that can cause harm and damage to those that are tackling the clean up and living close by. But why is this so? The toxic debris and hazardous ash can potentially contain harmful levels of heavy metals, which include antimony, chromium, arsenic, cadmium, copper, lead and zinc. This assortment of hazardous debris can also contain electronic waste from computers, monitors, batteries and other toxic substances from, paints, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and asbestos.

After the fires are extinguished, the leftover toxic debris can create a direct exposure to those that are sifting through, handling the ash and living in the surrounding areas. Hence, it is important to make sure this hazardous ash is contained and controlled as much as possible. This can be accomplished by first properly wetting down and controlling the offending material with the right product and then properly handling it during the clean up and removal, thereby minimizing and helping prevent the possibility of unnecessary exposure to individuals and entire neighborhoods.
