Default Particulate filters for smoke in Cali?

A bit of ash was present in parts of Menifee I visited during the fires in Elsinore... but what about smoke north of Menifee?

It looked like the smoke went up, and over, just north of Menifee.

I saw a bunch of "related" N95 filters and such in some Lowe's stores in the surrounding areas.

Anyone need/use N95's in say Sun City/Homoland/Romoland to Hemet?

Results?

Anyone know if N95 is useful at all for ash/smoke (from a distance)?
95% of down to .3 micron seems like quite a bit...

EDIT: may have got my answer:

Just an FYI, for mask ratings such as N95, apparently N is for non-oil resistant, R is for resistant to oil, and P is for Oil-proof, all down to .3 microns:

Channel 5 did a small review.
N95 was the recommended filter for the fires. For dust and ash.
Direct path of fire. You will need what the firefighters are using.

I have never claimed to be in my right-mind, but I believe anyone using an N95 directly in a fire would probably help natural selection by removing themselves form gene pool...

Lucky is correct.
Bandanna was always present and used sometimes. Personal preference only.
Gotta lot of use blowing out black snot tho.

And they suffer for it.

SCBA is only good for about 30 mins. Fine for a structure fire, impossible for hours at a time in wildland firefighting.

You learn to breathe through your nose, and you learn to farmer blow a lot, and you learn one additional value of good hydration.

Two years was enough for me.

A former coworker in healthcare is a paramedic/former FF and he lost his sense of smell completely from wildland firefighting.

More light needs to be shine on this subject.
