Online tool helps outdoor workers keep tabs on air pollution.

| August 9, 2010

 

In many places, pollution reaches its peak during the busy summer season. EPA provides a tool to help you make decisions about daily crew activities when the air quality index reaches a certain level.
 
People with heart or lung disease – including asthma – and all people who are active outdoors are at greater risk from air pollution.
 
The Air Quality Index is EPA’s color-coded tool for reporting daily air quality and forecasts for common air pollutants, including ozone and particle pollution. It also provides information about simple actions people can take to reduce their exposure to air pollution.
 
Checking the AQI forecast to plan your outdoor activities is as easy as checking the weather. People can find forecasts and current readings at www.airnow.gov, or sign up to get forecasts by e-mail at http://enviroflash.info
