Post by ParkBull » Tue Aug 10, 2021 9:28 am

...AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY FOR WILDFIRE SMOKE FROM 800 AM
TUESDAY UNTIL 900 AM WEDNESDAY...

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

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

WHERE...Moffat, Routt, Jackson, Grand, Rio Blanco, Garfield,
Eagle, Summit, Gilpin, Clear Creek, Mesa, Pitkin, Lake, and Park
Counties. Locations include, but are not limited to Craig,
Steamboat Springs, Walden, Hot Sulphur Springs, Meeker, Glenwood
Springs, Eagle, Breckenridge, Central City, Georgetown, Grand
Junction, Aspen, Leadville, and Fairplay.

WHEN...800 AM Tuesday August 10 to 900 AM Wednesday August 11

IMPACTS...Moderate to heavy concentrations of smoke from
California wildfires will continue to move into Colorado on
Tuesday, affecting northwestern and north-central Colorado on
Tuesday and Wednesday. Expect the heaviest smoke impacts in
sheltered valley locations where atmospheric mixing is more
limited. Some intermittent clearing is possible on Tuesday and
Wednesday, however residual health impacts may linger from
prolonged exposure to elevated smoke concentrations.

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.
