    Last year as wildfires raged in California, some building owners closed outdoor intakes but left bathroom intakes open, pulling smoke into the building. Greg Nilsson and Mike Gallagher, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, discuss ASHRAE’s proposed guideline on protecting building occupants from smoke during wildfire and prescribed burn events and offer some tips for engineers, facility managers and owners.
