AQI: Good (0 - 50) AQI: Good (0 - 50)
Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
AQI: Moderate (51 - 100) AQI: Moderate (51 - 100)
Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150) AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150)
Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.
AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200) AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200)
Everyone may begin to experience health effects members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
 AQI:Very Unhealthy (201 - 300) AQI: Very Unhealthy (201 - 300)
Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects.
AQI: Hazardous(301 - 500) AQI: Hazardous (301 - 500)
Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.

Forecast Discussion: Wildfire Smoke Update - The Public Health Department and the Air Pollution Control District are working in partnership to assess air quality in SLO County to identify any potential health impacts and to inform the community about safeguarding individual health. Conditions are subject to rapid change based on weather patterns, wind direction and progress of the fire. County officials recommend that, if you smell smoke or see ash fall, take precautions and use common sense to reduce the harmful health effects associated with smoke exposure. When it is obvious that smoke is in the air, all adults and children should avoid strenuous outdoor activity and remain indoors as much as possible and set any heating/air conditioning/ventilation systems to recirculation. If staying indoors does not provide relief, temporarily leaving the area and going to a location where the smoke impacts are not significant is advised. These precautions are especially important for people with existing respiratory illness and heart conditions, older adults and children as they are particularly vulnerable to the health effects of declining air quality. It is important for families with small children to be aware that even if adults in the household have no symptoms, children may be experiencing them due to their smaller body mass and developing lungs. If smoke impacts increase, healthy people could be affected as well. If a cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, exhaustion, light-headedness or chest pain occurs, outdoor activity should be stopped immediately, and the affected person should seek medical attention. ------- SLO COUNTY APCD ISSUES VOLUNTARY “DON’T LIGHT TONIGHT” ADVISORY ------ 12/15/17 through 12/18/17 - At this time, the SLO County APCD is issuing a voluntary “Don’t Light Tonight” advisory, asking residents to refrain from burning wood or using their wood stoves or fireplaces unless they are being used as a primary source of heat. Stagnant weather conditions and elevated use of fireplaces and wood stoves further exacerbates the levels of fine particulate matter in the air and traps wood smoke closer to the ground and the air people breathe. With the already smoky conditions due to the wildfires in Ventura and Santa Barbara County, fireplace use is not recommended for the period 12/14/17 through 12/18/17.
