Celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week
It’s Air Quality Awareness Week! This year’s theme is “Be Air Aware and Prepared.” Learn how you can be aware and prepared by checking out daily information about air quality topics, including wildfire smoke, asthma, and environmental justice, among others. Celebrate #AQAW2022 with us on Twitter and Facebook.
Wildfire Guide Information Page
We’ve created a new Wildfire Guide Information Page where you can find the updated Wildfire Smoke: A Guide for Public Health Officials (Wildfire Guide). The page includes links to Wildfire Guide Factsheets for the public, and Post-Publication Updates, where you can find up-to-date guidance and other new evidence-based information for public health officials.
Updated AirNow Website
Fire and Smoke Map Update
AirNow and the US Forest Service have updated the Fire and Smoke Map to give you even more information! On the map, click on any monitor (circle) or sensor (square) to check the current NowCast AQI, learn what actions to take, and find out if air quality is getting better or worse.
Fire and Smoke Map Now Available in AirNow App
We’ve updated the AirNow mobile app to give you even more information by adding the Fire and Smoke Map, which gives you information on fire location, smoke plumes, and air quality that you can use to protect yourself and your family from wildfire smoke. Update or download the updated app for free on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
