Reminder about air quality related to wildfires

Due to the possibility of rapid weather changes, it is difficult to predict the condition of air quality related to the current Boulder County fires.

In general, if you can see or smell smoke, it is recommended that you avoid outdoor physical activities. If visibility is decreased in your neighborhood to less than five miles, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy. More information about the health risks and precautions related to wildfire smoke is available at:www.BoulderCounty.org/env/air/pages/wildfire.aspx
