Wildfire smoke can contain carbon monoxide, benzene, formaldehyde, particulate matter (PM), acrolein, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Unlike structural firefighters, wildland firefighters do not wear any respiratory protection, as there is no respirator currently available that meets specifications recommended by the National Fire Protection Association. This article advances SDGs 3 and 13.

This book chapter advances SDGs 11 and 15.

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction encourages investment in innovation and technology development in disaster risk management. However, needs for science and technology inputs are unmet, and there is a lack of policy making that is based on science and evidence. This article addresses goals 1, 11, 13 and 17 by exploring three key issues that could help overcome these barriers: networking, coproduction of knowledge, and a stronger role played by academia.
