Air Quality Alert Issued For The Bay Area


An air quality advisory is being issued for Monday for the Bay Area because wildfire smoke may drift into the region, air district officials said Sunday.

This is not a Spare the Air alert, the officials said.


Air district officials expect smoke from the Six Rivers Lightning Complex Fire to affect the San Francisco region. The fire is in Humboldt and Trinity counties.

Pockets of elevated air pollution are possible, but the air is expected to remain healthy. Skies may be smoky, and residents may smell smoke.

If residents smell smoke they are urged to stay inside, if possible, with doors and windows closed. Air district officials encourage residents with air conditioning to set their home and car units to re-circulate to keep smoke from coming inside.

Oh joy, overpaid bureaucrats tell us the obvious again!

No problem with staying inside. The air stinks.

The BAAQMD can take their alert and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

Disban the BAAQMD, use the money saved for the roads department.

WC August 15, 2022 - 11:54 AM

And more police.

So we have a advisory that we don’t have a alert to something we already know. Our tax dollars at work….

Upon checking purpleair.com it’s bad enough but I wouldn’t do any running. Gee folks, do you think I could crank up my BBQ for some ribs? Just asking….

…what a joke – it’s so poiticized… I asked a question to them about their criteria for calling a spare the air day and they couldn’t give me a straight answer … a bunch of gobbleygook and when I pointed out their contradictory requirements it came down to their subjective decision-making … disband them all and save the $$$

Meanwhile we have been dealing with a toxic smell in the air in this area since the beginning of May. Have heard nothing or seen anything about it. That old PG&E plant in Pittsburg is causing a great deal of toxic smelling odors day and night. Air Quality complaint is a joke! Says the air is great meanwhile you can’t go outside or open your windows for a full day.
