All individuals are urged to exercise caution and avoid unnecessary outdoor activities in any area directly impacted by smoke. Smoke impacted areas are where residents can see or smell smoke. Air quality may reach Unhealthy levels in areas directly impacted by smoke.
In any area impacted by smoke: Everyone should avoid any vigorous outdoor or indoor exertion; people with respiratory or heart disease, older adults, and children should remain indoors. Keep your windows and doors closed or seek alternate shelter. Avoid using a swamp cooler or whole-house fan to prevent bringing additional smoke inside.
