Air Quality Information

The office is getting a lot of calls regarding air quality as the winds have shifted and our area is getting more ash and smoke. For children and teens without previous lung issues, try to stay indoors as much as possible, keep your windows and doors closed and minimize outdoor activities. For children and teens with a history of asthma or any chronic lung condition, do all of the above and consider using your preventive controller inhaler if your doctor has prescribed one for you in the past.  You can follow the air quality at airnow.gov. Just type your zip code into the box at the top of the screen and look at the "forecast".
