EHP has long recommended that residents reduce exposure to pollution by using portable air filters in their homes, paying attention to the air quality index, and limiting outside activity when air quality is poor. Reducing Outdoor Contaminants in Indoor Spaces (ROCIS) offers a DIY, low cost fan/filter to remove particles in the air. To learn more about assembling your own fan/filter, click here.
