Brief Description SPECIAL AIR QUALITY STATEMENT
Detailed Description 4:45 AM MST Wednesday 04 August 2021 Special air quality statement in effect for: Old Crow Heavy Smoke due to Local Fires What, Where, Why: Smoke from the active fires in Yukon are impacting air quality Health Message: Due to smoky conditions from wildfires, individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. If you are experiencing symptoms, limit outdoor activity and/or strenuous physical activity; if breathing becomes difficult or uncomfortable, stop or reduce activity. Those who are most at-risk from impacts of wildfire smoke are: children, pregnant women, elders, those with lung or heart disease and people participating in sports or strenuous work outdoors. Health Protective Actions: Limit outdoor activity and strenuous activities as much as possible. Reduce exposure to smoky air by staying indoors with windows and doors closed and turning on an air cleaner with a HEPA filter, if you have one. Keep indoor air cleaner by avoiding smoking or burning other materials. If heat is also an issue: Seek out a cooler space. If your home is not air-conditioned, be sure the house doesn't get too warm when doors and windows are closed to keep out smoke. Exposure to too much heat can also result in illness. If there is smoke: Drive carefully because visibility may be reduced. Keep the windows closed and set the ventilation system to recirculate. Vehicles should not be used as a shelter, but as a means to get somewhere or to leave the area. If you have neighbours, friends, or relatives who live alone , check on them to make sure they are okay. For any health concern, contact your health care provider.
