Air Quality & You

Are you interested in staying informed about your region’s air quality? Sign up for Air Alert!

Maybe you or someone you know has asthma, or maybe you want to know what days being outside may be hazardous to your health. By signing up for Air Alert through the Spare the Air program, you will receive notifications via email with daily air quality forecasts for the Sacramento Region, which includes Placer County.

From May through October, this means the updates will be about ground-level ozone. From November to April, the forecasts will be about particulate matter. Air Alerts can help you decide if children should participate in outdoor sporting activities, and can help you check to see when wood burning is prohibited in Sacramento County. The more you know, the more you can stay healthy and help improve our air quality.
