WHITEHORSE-Yukon's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Brendan Hanley, would like to remind Yukoners with asthma or lung or heart conditions to take special care as smoke from the large forest fire in southern Alaska blankets parts of Yukon.
Smoke from forest fires can often cause minor symptoms such as a runny nose and itchy eyes, irritated throat and sinuses, headaches or coughing. Individuals with asthma or chronic conditions can have more serious reactions.
"Smoke can worsen a breathing condition," Hanley says.

WHITEHORSE - Health and Social Services Minister Brad Cathers announced today that Whitehorse physician Brendan Hanley will assume responsibility as Yukon's Medical Officer of Health (MOH) in early February.
"We welcome Dr. Hanley as Yukon's new medical health officer," Cathers said.
"Coming to us from his role as emergency physician at Whitehorse General Hospital, and with his many years in Yukon, Dr. Hanley has gained an understanding of the issues he will face in his new role."
Hanley replaces Dr. Bryce Larke who served as Yukon's MOH for seven years.
In addition to his most recent role as Medical Director of the Whitehorse General Hospital Emergency Department, Hanley has extensive previous experience internationally, including with Doctors Without Borders. In 2003 he obtained a Masters degree in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University. He has an interest in many areas of community health and has played an active role locally in injury prevention.
"I am excited about the challenges ahead of me. I believe that the combination of my clinical experience in Yukon, and my training and experience elsewhere will bring an interesting lens onto the issues of importance to Yukoners. And I am privileged to be following such a fine predecessor as Dr. Larke," Hanley said.
Dr. Hanley will bring his own style to the role of medical officer of health and I am confident that Yukon's public health system remains in good hands."
