Air Quality Health Information for Wildfire Smoke

 Due to the Lake Christine Wildfire in Basalt, it is possible that those with compromised health are experiencing challenges with smoke in the air. 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 due to smoke in your neighborhood, the air has reached unhealthy levels.

The City of Aspen maintains round-the-clock air quality monitoring.  Residents and guests can go to www.aspenairquality.com anytime to check current conditions, which offer ratings by levels of health concern.  In addition, the emergency messaging system, Pitkin Alert, offers health alert information at www.pitkinalert.org.
