Just wear your P100 mask. You'll be protected.

Re: What's The Right Mask


Any mask with two rubber bands is considered a respirator and you need special certification for such.

Masks? What masks?

I can't smoke when I wear masks.

I disagree. A mask is a mask and a respirator has seals. It may need certifications, but they are distinctly different.

If the mask is considered a respirator it will have the NIOSH label.

If Yellowstone blows you'll be needing a lot more than a mask.... there might have been as much as 6' of ash on the gulf coast at Texas apparently.

You think someone might have moved a few decimal places to scare you into clicking on their stories?
There's plenty of local disasters waiting to happen that these "world ending cataclysms" seem kinda ridiculous to worry about.
If you want to see some scary ****, look at Mt Rainier and the whole valley down to Tacoma. Or the 9.0quake we're overdue for on the PNW coast that will Tsunami the whole coastline flat.
With the weather machine being broken now, I'd be more worried about draughts and floods and more megastorms than anything.

Nope. Not according to OSHA. Anything above a single elastic dust mask needs to be fitted on an employee by a certified respirator technician.

No one does it, but it is in the regs.

I think a plane ticket might be the best choice.
