Daily Smoke report from the Heliport! πŸ”₯πŸ’¨

Conditions seem to be improving because of wind direction. We're hoping both fires RWF071, and RWF070 move to under control status in the coming days.

With Air Quality, Visibility, and Wildfires worsening, we urge travels to stay safe. Please follow AHS's health information guidelines for Air Quality Events and Alberta Wildfire's bans.

Here are some things you can do to stay safe:

β€’ Close and lock all outside windows... and doors, including attached garage doors.
β€’ Turn down furnace thermostats and furnace fans to the minimum setting. Do not attempt to extinguish the pilot light.
β€’ If you have an air-conditioner, keep the fresh-air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent outdoor smoke from getting inside.
β€’ Avoid running fans, such as β€œwhole-house fans” or β€œfresh air ventilation systems”, that bring more smoky outdoor air inside.
β€’ Switch all floor registers to the closed position.
β€’ Close fireplace dampers on wood-burning fireplaces.
β€’ Do not use a wood-burning fireplace, wood stoves, or other smoke-producing appliances or features, including candles.
β€’ If you must drive to another location, keep windows and vents closed. Run car fans on re-circulate mode to avoid drawing in outdoor air.
β€’ Reduce levels of physical activity, as necessary, to decrease the inhalation of airborne pollutants.
β€’ Do not smoke tobacco – smoking puts added stress on your lungs and those around you.
β€’ Residents are reminded not to use backyard fire pits or fireboxes in parks when the air quality is poor.
