Air quality is important at every age! Children are especially sensitive to air pollution.
But air pollution doesn't have to make you sick or keep you from exercising.
Air pollution protection? Hmmm.
Help protect your campers from air pollution - it’s as easy as checking your email or app for the Air Quality Index (AQI)
Kids are more sensitive to air pollution because of their developing lungs and high activity levels. The AQI helps protect the health of our campers - particularly those with asthma and other respiratory illness. Go to
www.airnow.gov/enviroflash to receive a daily email about your local air quality. On days when the air quality is unhealthy, use the activity guidance chart to know when to
take precautions and how to modify outdoor activity.
Get outside... with the Air Quality Index (AQI)! A code orange AQI doesn't mean you have to cancel what you're doing outdoors, just change the time. Use the AQI to plan your outdoor activities.
