Help Improve Air Quality
Air pollution poses a health risk to everyone. Your risk depends on your age, current health status and the length of exposure to the pollution. Some people are more vulnerable, especially children, pregnant women, the elderly, and those with lung or heart disease.

Here are five things you can do to reduce pollution:

  1. Cut back on driving
  2. Never use charcoal lighter fluid
  3. Shop online
  4. Use electric-powered tools
  5. Refuel after the sun goes down

A Spare The Air alert in the Sacramento region will be issued when the AQI for ground-level ozone pollution is forecast to reach 127 or above.
