The Smoke Sense mobile Application is now live
As many of you already know, Smoke Sense is a citizen science mobile app developed as part of a public health study. Smoke Sense will study the extent to which wildfire smoke exposure affects health and productivity, as well as health risk communication strategies that improve public health outcomes.
The remainder of this smoke season will serve as a pilot of the app. While the app is available to the public, we are working with pilot communities to build a user base and collect feedback from the local level about Smoke Sense for the following smoke year.
Smoke Sense is now available for download on Android devices. Please go to www.epa.gov/air-research/smoke-sense to find the link to the Google Play Store. Also available on the website is a factsheet summarizing the study, a flyer showing the functionality of the app, and a list of FAQs for additional information. The iOS version is currently under development and we will let you know when it is available.
