Air Quality Advisory 7/16/14 11:00 am

Air Quality Advisory Wednesday 11 am

 

Leavenworth “Unhealthy”

Wenatchee “Moderate”

Chelan “Good”

 

When air quality is in the unhealthy range everyone is at risk of being affected by the smoke. Outdoor physical activities should be cancelled. At this point you should limit exposure to outside air and do not do anything that would increase your breathing rate, people should avoid any exertion.

In your vehicle use the recycle mode on your interior air system.  If possible, go to an area unaffected by the wildfire smoke until the smoke clears, especially if you are having symptoms like headaches, dizziness or nausea or having increased respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath.

Keep windows closed. Limit time outdoors. If you are having significant problems talk to your health care provider.

 

When air quality is in the moderate range the people most impacted are those with underlying conditions like asthma, lung diseases or heart disease, the very young or very old. Limit time outdoors and limit physical exertion to very short periods until air quality improves.
