Air Quality Alert

610 PM MDT Mon Sep 21 2020


The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...Routt, Jackson, and Larimer Counties. Locations include,
but are not limited to Steamboat Springs, Clark, Walden, Cowdrey,
and Rustic.

WHEN...600 PM Monday September 21 to 900 AM Tuesday September 22

IMPACTS...Increased fire activity at the Middle Fork, Mullen, and
Cameron Peak wildfires will result in periods of moderate to heavy
smoke across the advisory area. The heaviest smoke is expected for
locations in areas near the fires at lower elevations. This
includes the Mad Creek drainage from the Middle Fork fire
southwestward to Routt County Road 129 between Steamboat Springs
and Clark, Poudre Canyon Road and Red Feather Lakes to the
northeast and east of the Cameron Peak fire, and locations along
the Colorado-Wyoming state line in northern Jackson County.

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
