Wildfire Smoke


Some of the largest wildfires in California State history have impacted many CSU campuses in recent years.  On multiple occasions, wildfire smoke events have resulted in curtailed activities and/or campus closure at San José State University.


The goal of this program is to outline a clear and consistent methodology for campus decision-making when air quality conditions deteriorate during a wildfire smoke event.  EHS will make communication to campus if a wildfire smoke event is severe enough to require operational adjustments to keep faculty, staff and students safe. 

Detailed information can be found in the SJSU Wildfire Smoke Event Response Program [pdf].
