Air Quality Alert


Air Quality Alert Message
Relayed by National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
803 PM MDT Sat Jun 12 2021

The following message is transmitted at the request of the New
Mexico Departments of Health and Environment.

Wildfires in southern Arizona, southwestern and central New Mexico
continue to produce large amounts of smoke, and this smoke will
continue to spread into much of western and central New Mexico. Anyone
living in western and central New Mexico should be prepared for
reduced air quality through the mid morning hours on Sunday. Those
with conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
interstitial lung disease, lung cancer, and heart disease will be
especially vulnerable to impacts from poor air quality, as will adults
over age 65, young children, and pregnant women if smoke concentrations
become unhealthy..

Remember, your eyes are your best tools to determine if it is safe
to be outside. Use the 5-3-1 Method available at

If visibility is:

Under 5 miles, the air quality is unhealthy for young children,
adults over age 65, pregnant women, and people with heart
and/or lung disease, asthma or other respiratory illness.
Outdoor activity should be minimized.

Around 3 miles, young children, adults over age 65, pregnant
women, and people with heart and/or lung disease, asthma or other
respiratory illness should avoid all outdoor activities.

Around 1 mile, the air quality is unhealthy for everyone. People
should remain indoors and avoid all outdoor activities including
running errands. Unless an evacuation has been issued, stay inside
your home, indoor workplace, or in a safe shelter.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic affecting New Mexico and with the
wildfire season underway, New Mexicans will need to take extra
precautions. Smoke from wildfires may cause people to have more
severe reactions if they are infected COVID-19. The best way to
protect against the potentially harmful effects of wildfire smoke and
to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is to stay home and create a clean
indoor air space. NMDOH offers tips here: and

New Mexicans will also need to take steps to keep their homes cool to
avoid heat-related illnesses. NMDOH offers tips here:
