THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION HAS
ISSUED AN AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY FOR THE FOLLOWING COUNTIES...

DUTCHESS...ULSTER...COLUMBIA...GREENE...SCHOHARIE...ALBANY...
RENSSELAER...SARATOGA...SCHENECTADY...WASHINGTON...FULTON...
MONTGOMERY.

AIR QUALITY LEVELS IN OUTDOOR AIR ARE PREDICTED TO BE GREATER THAN AN
AIR QUALITY INDEX VALUE OF 100 FOR THE POLLUTANT OF OZONE. THE AIR
QUALITY INDEX...OR AQI...WAS CREATED AS AN EASY WAY TO CORRELATE
LEVELS OF DIFFERENT POLLUTANTS TO ONE SCALE. THE HIGHER THE AQI
VALUE...THE GREATER THE HEALTH CONCERN.

WHEN POLLUTION LEVELS ARE ELEVATED...THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF
HEALTH RECOMMENDS THAT INDIVIDUALS CONSIDER LIMITING STRENUOUS OUTDOOR
PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS. PEOPLE
WHO MAY BE ESPECIALLY SENSITIVE TO THE EFFECTS OF ELEVATED LEVELS
OF POLLUTANTS INCLUDE THE VERY YOUNG...AND THOSE WITH PRE
EXISTING RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS SUCH AS ASTHMA OR HEART DISEASE.
THOSE WITH SYMPTOMS SHOULD CONSIDER CONSULTING THEIR PERSONAL
PHYSICIAN.

A TOLL FREE AIR QUALITY HOTLINE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED SO NEW YORK
RESIDENTS CAN STAY INFORMED ON THE AIR QUALITY SITUATION.
THE TOLL FREE NUMBER IS: 1 800 5 3 5, 1 3 4 5.
