If you smell smoke, or see smoke around you, consider restricting your outside activities. Bennitt says the particulate matter will be heavy at times.
Bennitt describes who’s included in the “sensitive” range.
Healthy people should delay strenuous exercise, particularly when they can smell smoke, and children should avoid outdoor activities and prolonged exertion.
The air quality health advisory is issued for high smoke and ozone levels.
