...AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY FOR WILDFIRE SMOKE FROM 900 AM TUESDAY UNTIL 400 PM TUESDAY...

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...Park, Teller, El Paso, Fremont, Custer and Pueblo
Counties. Locations include, but are not limited to Fairplay,
Cripple Creek, Colorado Springs, Canon City, Westcliffe, and
Pueblo.

WHEN...900 AM Tuesday October 06 to 400 PM Tuesday October 06

IMPACTS...Widespread smoke transported from local wildfires has
been observed across the advisory area Tuesday morning. Smoke will
gradually decrease on Tuesday, with the slowest improvement
expected in El Paso and Pueblo counties, including the Colorado
Springs and Pueblo metro areas.

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
