NM Wildfire History

Wildfires pose a risk to our environment, human health and biodiversity. Following catastrophic wildfires flooding causes sediment to flow into our rivers and streams; polluting our drinking water and damaging riparian ecosystems. The smoke from wildfires can negatively affect the respiratory system; so using personal protective equipment may be necessary when traveling outdoors during a wildfire.
