Tuesday, August 26, Happy Camp Air Quality in the Hazardous Range

In addition to fine particulates (PM 2.5), wildfire smoke contains other substances hazardous to your health including carbon monoxide (CO), ozone, and various volatile organic compounds. When PM 2.5 concentrations are elevated to hazardous levels, other unhealthy compounds may be present at very high levels as well.
