Information about Air Quality

Winds can spread smoke from wildfires. Smoke may produce poor air quality and reduced visibilities in some areas especially closer to the fire source. Smoke near the ground is causing very high health risk conditions.

High levels of particulate matter may persist locally until the fire is extinguished or controlled. Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.

People with lung diseases, such as asthma and COPD, can be particularly sensitive to air pollution. They will generally experience more serious health effects at lower levels. Pollution can aggravate their diseases, leading to increased medication use, doctor and emergency room visits, and hospital visits.

Be air aware! Check your local weather forecasts and alerts so you know when to take extra care.
