Air Quality Awareness Week

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have declared this week air quality awareness week. Each day, Monday through Friday, has a different air quality or air pollution topic. The National Weather Service’s website http://www.epa.gov/airnow/airaware/ has links where you can find out more information about each day’s topic. The theme of this year’s Air Quality Awareness Week is “Be Air Aware: Keep an Eye on the AQI.”

Monday: Ozone and Particle Pollution
Tuesday: What Causes Poor Air Quality
Wednesday: Keeping Your Lungs and Heart Safe
Thursday: How to get Current Air Quality Info
Friday: What You Can Do To Make Air Cleaner

Happy Monday!
