Wildfire Smoke Leads to "Unhealthful for Sensitive Groups" Air Quality

San Andreas, CA...Smoke from California fires is impacting air quality in Calaveras County and air quality in county’s lower elevations falls under the category “Unhealthful for Sensitive Groups.” Sensitive populations include individuals with heart and lung disease, elderly persons, infants, children and pregnant women.




As general cautionary measures, the following measures can be taken to protect during periods of poor air quality:
 Minimize or stop outdoor activities, especially exercise
 Stay indoors with windows and doors closed as much as possible
 Do not run fans that bring smoky outdoor air inside – examples include swamp coolers, whole-house fans, and fresh air ventilation systems
 Run your air-conditioner only if it does not bring smoke in from the outdoors. Change the standard air conditioner filter to a medium or high efficiency filter. If available, use the “re-circulate” or “recycle” setting on the unit
 Do not smoke, vacuum, fry food, or do other things that will create indoor air pollution
 If you have asthma, take your medications and follow your asthma management plan
Even healthy persons can be affected by wildfire smoke. If you can see or smell smoke, take precautions. People with heart or lung disease who experience repeated coughing, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, wheezing, chest tightness or pain should contact their doctor or clinic. “If an existing illness gets worse due to smoke exposure, seek medical help,” advised Dr. Dean Kelaita, County Health Officer.
The Calaveras County Air Pollution Control District will continue monitoring the air quality in the county and will provide additional advisories as air quality conditions evolve.
For more information call the Calaveras County Air Pollution Control District at (209) 754-6399 or Calaveras County Health and Human Services at (209) 754-6448.
