What is an Air Alert?
Air Alerts are issued when air quality is expected to reach unhealthy levels. Clean Air Partners receive Air Alert e-mails on the afternoon preceding an Air Alert Day. Partners then send the e-mail to their employees notifying them of the air’s unhealthy conditions.
On Air Alert Days people with asthma, respiratory disease, and heart conditions, senior citizens, young children, and active individuals should consider limiting strenuous outdoor activities. Everyone can reduce air pollution by: sharing a ride or using public transportation; driving smart by combining errands, limiting engine idling, and avoiding rush hour; postponing mowing and filling of gas tanks until evening; and conserving energy at home.
