To pro­tect your­self

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - WINE COUNTRY FIRES -

Stay in­side with doors and win­dows closed. Do not use air con­di­tion­ers or heaters that bring in air from the out­side.

If you are not home, seek out pub­lic spa­ces like li­braries, movie the­aters or shop­ping malls that use re­cir­cu­lated air. Call ahead to make sure they have air fil­ters.

In San Fran­cisco, th­ese li­braries have air fil­ters and are open on Fri­day dur­ing the fol­low­ing hours:

San Fran­cisco Main Li­brary, 100 Larkin St., noon to 6 p.m.

Chi­na­town Branch Li­brary, 1135 Pow­ell St., 1 to 6 p.m.

Mis­sion Bay Branch Li­brary, 960 Fourth St., 1 to 6 p.m.

Glen Park Branch Li­brary, 2825 Di­a­mond St., 1 to 6 p.m.

If you are out­side, limit ex­er­tion.

Wear a mask that keeps out small par­ti­cles. N95 masks are the most com­mon and can be pur­chased at hard­ware stores, phar­ma­cies or stores like Walmart.

Seek med­i­cal at­ten­tion if you have dif­fi­culty breath­ing, wheez­ing, chest pain, nau­sea or dizzi­ness that is not re­solved by go­ing in­side or get­ting away from smoke.
