This web service is "location aware," so when you go to that link on your phone browser, you can give permission for your phone to tell it where you are, and it will tell you:

  1. all about the air quality at the monitors or sensors nearest you,

  3. (best of all) send you directly to any smoke forecast outlooks created by Air Resource Advisors (ARAs) that apply to your area.
