The Saddleworth moor fires: an air quality monitoring response
This seminar discusses the air quality considerations during a major incident, in particular when moving from the emergency phase to the recovery phase. When the Saddleworth moor fire broke out, appropriate air quality limits were applied that aimed to consider all exposed receptors e.g. the fire service as workers, or affected residents. The talk discusses these air quality limits and the actions that were taken based on air quality monitoring.
