Ozone Action season begins May 1st
Ozone Action days are called when hot summer temperatures are expected to combine with pollution to create high amounts of ground-level ozone. Breathing high levels of ozone can trigger a variety of health problems, particularly in children, the elderly, and people with asthma or other lung diseases.
On Ozone Action Days, people are asked to take certain actions that can help reduce the formation of ozone and keep it at levels that meet the national air quality standard. Check out the "What to do on an Ozone Action Day" tab below to find out the specific pollution-reducing actions you can take.
To find out when an Ozone Action Day has been called, follow us on social media or sign up for email notifications using the subject line "notification," and provide your name, phone number, and email address.
