Wildfire Smoke Advisory in Place Until Further Notice

San Andreas, CA...The Calaveras County Public Health Officer and Calaveras County Air Pollution Control District are re-issuing a joint air quality advisory to notify the public of the potential for poor air quality conditions due to smoke from fires currently burning throughout the state. This advisory will remain in place until further notice. The potential impact varies, based on geographical location and wind direction, but has the greatest impact at this time on sensitive populations, including 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 – Public Health Division at (209) 754-6460.

When will they start handing out masks for the local public and tourists? Oh...I forgot they have to hide all our problems or no one will be coming to visit. We have one of the worst local governments for transparency.

    Too all the arrogant, learned but oh so stupid Greenies you caused this mess when you kept us from using common sense on logging plans and forest management.

    On top of that just think about the CO2 these fires release!!!

    How about letting those who know and really care about the forests lead the way in the future?

    Your 50 year battle to "Save the forests" has led to massive fires, tree mortality and just idiotic policies.

    Your idiocy has led to the the destruction of what you were trying to save.

    Your precious wilderness plans have turned heaven into a burning hell.

    Just lock yourself in your apartment, eat your granola and polish your prius and leave the rest of us alone.

    In a few years we may have green lush forests again.

          In the picture, snapped in the darkness of a Wilton vineyard, Jack Kautz crouches behind a dead buck, smiling as he holds up the animal's head by its freakishly large set of antlers.

          It was a buck for the record books with sprawling antlers about an arm's width apart. If Katuz 52, had been had been able to claim it is a official trophy, he could have added it to his long list of accomplishments detailed on the website of his family's Lodi grape growing business, Ironstone Vineyards.
