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.
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.
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.
