NSU Professor Featured in Everglades Fire Stories

A late afternoon storm on Tuesday, June 25th, 2019, pushed smoke and flames from the Sawgrass Fire from the Everglades closer to I-75.  Smoke on the road caused poor visibility.  Earlier that day, the Florida Department of Health issued an advisory about the dangers of smoke, warning those with asthma, heart problems, or breathing problems to remain inside.  Dr. Barbara Arcos, the Chair of Family Medicine at NSU spoke on this.

“The community in general should do their best to stay inside, in the air conditioning with windows closed,” she said. “If they have to travel outside, limit their exposure. Travel in their cars with the windows up and air on and set air to recirculate so they don’t bring in outside air.”
