Air Quality

Monitor your local air quality, and if needed, take precautionary steps. If you can see or smell smoke, reduce your exposure by doing indoors. People should reduce or limit strenuous outdoor activity if smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy. The Colorado Department of Health and Environment's air quality index reports the daily level of air pollution on an hourly basis.
