Pollution levels are not expected to exceed federal health standards and no Spare the Air Alert will be in effect.

When the smell of smoke is present, residents should stay inside with windows and doors closed until smoke levels subside, if temperatures allow. It is also recommended that air conditioning units and car vent systems be set to re-circulate to keep outside air from moving inside.
