Supporting people when air quality is heavily impacted by bushfire smoke - Guidance for local government

This guidance is to assist local government environmental health officers, building engineers and emergency management professionals, to plan for community respite to 'cleaner air' when local air quality becomes heavily impacted by smoke from large scale or prolonged bushfire activity. This could usefully build on planning and development of cool spaces earmarked for respite during periods of extreme heat.
