Wild Fire Survey

Wild Fire Survey: Part of the CCE and MPH Program Air Quality Monitor Project

Did you live in the Northeastern U.S. from summer 2023 and experience the wildfire smoke events from Canada? If so, tell us more about your experience!

Our partners within the Department of Public and Ecosystem Health at Cornell University are conducting a study to better understand how individuals in Northeast US responded to the smoke during the summer 2023 wildfire season.

What will you be asked to do? Fill out a 10-minute survey comprised of multiple-choice questions. We'd like to ask you how you typically access information on air quality, if you have experienced periods of poor air quality due to smoke, how smoke affects you, and how your behaviors change during heavy smoke. After you complete it, you can win one of five $50.00 Amazon gift cards. Results from this research will contribute to greater shared knowledge with the goal of advancing efforts related to wildfire smoke mitigation and response in the United States.

Who is eligible? All individuals who are at least 18 years old or older and who spent most of their time in the Northeastern United States (including Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, or West Virginia) during the summer of 2023 are invited to participate in this survey.

We would greatly appreciate your help getting a wide variety of responses and encourage you to pass this survey along to anyone interested (or any groups). If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Erandy Barrera at
