Washington Smoke Map

*The map above is not able to display all state air quality monitors. Click here to see all monitors in Washington: WA Ecology Air Monitors

Note: Some users might notice intermittent discrepancies in colors shown on the map of air quality monitors above, and those reported on the Department of Ecology's official page. This is because Ecology believes their method of calculating the air quality category (i.e. “Good”, “Moderate”, Unhealthy” etc) is more protective of public health in Washington. If in doubt as to which better represents public health risk, use the more stringent of the two (i.e. the map showing worse air quality).

7/22/2014 Smoke and Pets

Smoke can affect pets too. The same smoke particles that cause problems for people may also cause problems for animals. Don't force your animals to run or work in smoky conditions. If your pet has heart or lung disease, follow the same  guidelines as for sensitive people.  Contact your local veterinarian with specific questions and concerns.  Or if needed, you can call Dr. Thomas Gilliom with the Washington State Department of Agriculture, Animal Health Division at 360-725-5655.
