Wood Smoke Work Group
Many tribal homes use old, inefficient and dirty burning stoves for heating and cooking. These outdated stoves may also release wood smoke that is harmful to the health of residents, especially the young and the old. To avoid these health risks and to gain the greater efficiency and effectiveness of new, cleaner burning technology wood stoves, it is recommended that old stoves be gradually replaced or “changed out.”
For more information and resources about wood smoke and stove change outs see our Indoor Air Quality page.
