HEPA air filter

SEATTLE — Some Eastern Washington residents who are 65 or older and living with lung disease may qualify to receive a free air purifier, helping to protect themselves from the region's smoke-laden summers.

The American Lung Association says low-income senior residents dealing with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease can apply to receive a limited number of free HEPA air purifiers. The first-come, first-served project aids residents living in Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan, Grant, Stevens, Ferry and Pend Oreille counties.

Applicants in the seven counties can apply at this link, or call (206) 512-3291.

Thank You for this post. Many Grant County residents have Lung disease and cannot afford filters. Smoke can overwhelm these residents. Many are Senior citizens and live in poverty.
