Unhealthy air quality will occur in areas of direct smoke impact, especially near the fires. These areas will likely include:
· portions of the San Gabriel Mountains
· the West San Bernardino Mountains
· the Santa Clarita Valley
· the San Fernando Valley
· Central Los Angeles County
· the East San Gabriel Valley
· the West San Gabriel Valley
· the Hemet/San Jacinto Area
Wildfires generate smoke containing numerous air pollutants including fine particulates known as PM10 and PM2.5.
In areas with Unhealthy air quality and those directly impacted by smoke: Everyone should avoid any vigorous outdoor or indoor exertion; people with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly, and children should remain indoors. Keep your windows and doors closed unless it is extremely hot inside. In these cases, seek alternate shelter. Run your air conditioner if you have one. Keep the fresh air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent bringing additional smoke inside.
