National Air Quality Awareness Week

National Air Quality Awareness Week

The National Weather Service (NWS) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urge Americans to be aware of "What's your Air Quality IQ?" during Air Quality Awareness Week, which runs from April 28 through May 2, 2014.

The goal of Air Quality Awareness Week is to provide information on outdoor air pollution and its impact on the quality of the air we breathe. A different air quality topic will be addressed each day, from the causes of poor air quality and how air quality predictions are made, to how to protect yourself on poor air quality days, and steps you can take to improve the cleanliness of the air we breathe. 

For more information on Air Quality Awareness Week, please go to NWS Air Quality Awareness.
