Keep an eye on the Air Quality Index

When it's smoky out, this is a great resource to keep an eye on air quality index (AQI), and figure out what level of activity to do outside.

You can also get your own sensor here!

Check out ORCAH partner organization Neighbors for Clean Air for wildfire smoke resources and if you are interested in participating in their clean air programs and advocacy.

If you're wanting more info about the fires that are repsonsible for a lot of these AQI problems, check out the Northwest Coordination Center (NWCC) and InciWeb.
