The government will be asked to deliver a comprehensive plan to manage poor air quality after Canberra choked on smoke in "apocalyptic" conditions throughout this summer.
ACT Greens leader Shane Rattenbury said climate change meant the ACT needed to be able to respond to bushfire smoke and air quality problems in the future.
He will put forward a motion in the ACT Legislative Assembly on Thursday calling on the government to create a whole of government strategy, to be completed and released before the beginning of the next fire season.
Canberra faced weeks of smoke - peaking just before Christmas and again on New Year's Day - that saw the ACT face the world's worst air quality.
Hundreds of Canberrans sought medical treatment, offices and government departments were closed down, and dozens of sporting and community events were cancelled.
P2 masks were sold out across the territory during some of the worst periods of smoke.
Mr Rattenbury said the availability and distribution of face masks should be closely considered.
The government should also look into measures to better protect vulnerable people from the smoke and set air quality standards for workers.
It should consider what public places are available for people to seek shelter from the smoke in, Mr Rattenbury said.
"There's no question that the smoke has impacted every member of our Canberra community, in every part of our lives," he said.
"It's been a calamitous time for the territory. For weeks, our city choked on the smoke of the worst air quality in the world. We saw in the new year through a haze of thick orange smoke. Many individuals and families left our city or stayed away during the height of the smoke crisis.
"We've had hundreds of Canberrans visit hospitals, walk-in centres and GPs to deal with their health impacts of the smoke.
"It's been almost apocalyptic and very surreal, to watch Canberrans walk and ride around town in air pollution masks that look like something out of a horror film."
Mr Rattenbury said due to climate change, the government could not assume the events would be a one-off.
"As part of adapting, and to ensure Canberrans are protected in the future, we need a comprehensive plan in place to make sure we can respond to smoke and air quality problems."
Canberrans have only just begun to breath more easily, with recent rainfall helping to contain and extinguish bushfires across NSW.
While the Orroral Valley fire and nearby fires in NSW are still burning the Bureau of Meteorology said it was unlikely heavy smoke haze from these fires would blanket the territory.
None of the three air quality stations in the ACT have recorded an above hazardous rating since February 4.
