...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM SATURDAY TO 11 PM
SATURDAY...

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

SULLIVAN.

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.
