Including the cities of Arlington, Elk Mountain, Saratoga,
Encampment, Centennial, Albany, Bosler, Laramie, Buford,
Pumpkin Vine, Vedauwoo, Whitaker, Federal, Horse Creek, and Cheyenne
1200 PM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020

...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON MDT FRIDAY...

The following message is transmitted in collaboration with the
Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Air Quality Division
and the Wyoming Department of Health.

WHAT...Air Quality Alert for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...Southeastern Carbon County, southern half of Albany County,
and most of Laramie County.

WHEN...Now through Noon Friday.

IMPACTS...Heavy smoke from the Mullen Wildfire west of Laramie may
cause health effects to sensitive groups.

HEALTH INFORMATION...The Wyoming Department of Health recommends the
elderly, young children, and individuals with respiratory problems
avoid excessive physical exertion and minimize outdoor activities
during this time. Wildfire smoke is made up of a variety of
pollutants, including particulate matter and ozone, which can cause
respiratory health effect. Although these people are most
susceptible to health impacts, the Department of Health also advises
that everyone should avoid prolonged exposure to poor air quality
conditions.

CURRENT CONDITIONS...The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality,
Air Quality Division offers near real-time air quality data for
Wyoming`s monitoring stations and health effects information to help
the public interpret current conditions. Current air quality conditions
across the state of Wyoming can be found at http://www.wyvisnet.com/

COC057-021500-
Jackson-
910 AM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020

...AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY FOR WILDFIRE SMOKE FROM 900 AM
THURSDAY UNTIL 900 AM FRIDAY...

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...Routt and Jackson Counties. Locations include, but are not
limited to Steamboat Springs, Clark, Cowdrey, and Walden.

WHEN...900 AM Thursday October 01 to 900 AM Friday October 02

IMPACTS...Areas of moderate to heavy smoke can be expected across
the advisory area Thursday morning from the Middle Fork and Mullen
wildfires. Smoke will gradually decrease Thursday morning as
atmospheric mixing increases. By Thursday afternoon transport
winds at the fires will be out of a northwesterly direction. This
will send smoke to locations southeast of the fires, possibly
impacting large sections of Jackson County. The wind will decrease
Thursday night and smoke will begin to drain to lower elevations
surrounding the fires, mostly impacting the Mad Creek drainage
westward to Routt County Road 129 between Steamboat Springs and
Clark, and areas in northern Jackson County near the Wyoming state
line.

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.

910 AM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020

...ACTION DAY FOR PARTICULATES FROM 400 PM WEDNESDAY UNTIL 400 PM
THURSDAY...

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Action Day for Particulates.

WHERE...Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western
Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties

WHEN...400 PM Wednesday September 30 to 400 PM Thursday October 01

IMPACTS...Action Day for Particulates is now in effect for the
seven-county Denver-Boulder metropolitan area. Requests to limit
driving of non- ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel) are now in
effect until at least 4 PM Thursday, October 1, 2020.  Smoke from
several local wildfires is affecting air quality, resulting in
Fine Particulate concentrations in the Unhealthy for Sensitive
Groups category in locations throughout the Colorado Front Range
region. Daytime mixing of the atmosphere will generally allow
smoke to lift and surface concentrations to decrease, however
periods of moderate to heavy smoke are expected to return during
overnight and early morning hours on Wednesday and Thursday. For
areas included in this advisory that are not expected to exceed
the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (USG) air quality designation,
we request that activities, such as driving non-ZEV vehicles
(i.e., gas or diesel), be reduced to lessen the impacts on
neighboring air quality. Additional air pollution in this region
may directly worsen air quality or contribute to precursors which
may also adversely affect air quality.  For Colorado air quality
conditions, forecasts and advisories, visit:
https://www.colorado.gov/airquality/colorado_summary.aspx

HEALTH INFORMATION...If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your
neighborhood you may want to remain indoors. This is especially
true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very
young, and the elderly. Consider limiting outdoor activity when
moderate to heavy smoke is present. Consider relocating
temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is making you ill. If
visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in your neighborhood,
smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.

910 AM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020

...AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY FOR WILDFIRE SMOKE FROM 900 AM
THURSDAY UNTIL 900 AM FRIDAY...

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...Grand, Clear Creek, and Gilpin Counties. Locations
include, but are not limited to Parshall, Georgetown, Empire,
Idaho Springs, Central City, and Blackhawk.

WHEN...900 AM Thursday October 01 to 900 AM Friday October 02

IMPACTS...Areas of moderate to heavy smoke have been observed near
the Williams Fork wildfire located in Grand County. Smoke will
gradually decrease Thursday morning as atmospheric mixing
increases. By Thursday afternoon the wind at the fire will be out
of a northwesterly direction, sending smoke to the southeast and
possibly impacting areas including Georgetown, Empire, and Idaho
Springs. By late Thursday evening the wind will decrease and smoke
will begin to drain into lower lying areas surrounding the fire.
This will bring the possibility for heavy smoke through early
Friday morning to locations along Ute Pass Road and possibly into
the Parshall area, along with valley locations southeast of the
fire in Clear Creek and Gilpin counties.

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
