Brief Description Air Quality Alert
Detailed Description AIR QUALITY ALERT. The following message is transmitted at the request of the New Mexico Departments of Health and Environment, United States Forest Service and the Interagency Wildland Fire Air Quality Response Program. * WHAT. Smoke from the largest fires in the state will generally be transported toward the east or northeast through the remainder of the afternoon and evening. Weaker inversions and steadily increasing winds near ridgetop level from the southwest tonight will generally disrupt typical nighttime drainage patterns as observed the past two nights. The most impactful smoke should remain closer to the fire`s perimeters as compared to this past evening. Exceptions will be portions of the Mimbres and Lower Rio Grande valleys as well as the Upper Pecos and Gallinas watersheds where locally significant down valley impacts may be observed. Strengthening southwest winds on Saturday and excellent dispersion will quickly loft the most significant smoke plumes toward the northeast and higher in the atmosphere. Haze will likely be more noticeable and persistent away from the larger fires and areas of blowing dust will contribute to diminished air quality at times in the afternoon and evening. In addition to air quality concerns, record to near-record heat will be common for much of the area. * WHERE. The most significant impacts from smoke are expected to persist across much of Catron, western Socorro, northern Grant, northern Luna, and western Sierra counties in southwest New Mexico and western San Miguel and western Mora counties in north-central New Mexico. More details on impacted locations and latest air quality information can be found at https://fire.airnow.gov. * WHEN. Remainder of this afternoon through at least 1 pm MDT, Saturday, May 28, 2022. * IMPACTS. Those with conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer, and heart disease will be especially vulnerable to impacts from poor air quality, as will adults over age 65, young children, and pregnant women if smoke concentrations become unhealthy. * HEALTH INFORMATION. Remember, your eyes are your best tools to determine if it is safe to be outside. Use the 5-3-1 Method available at https://nmtracking.doh.nm.gov/environment/air/FireAndSmoke.html. A reminder, temperatures will be very high in the mid to upper 90s in areas of the state. According to the CDC the following groups are at greater risk for experiencing heat-related illness: Infants and young children, people 65 years of age or older, people who are overweight, people who overexert during work or exercise, people who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure, or who take certain medications, such as for depression, insomnia, or poor circulation. If you have adult neighbors, relatives, or friends who fit into any of these categories, consider checking on them a couple times a day during high heat events. Also, monitor infants and young children for signs of heat-related illness. You can find out more here https://nmtracking.doh.nm.gov/health/climate/HeatIl If visibility is: Under 5 miles, the air quality is unhealthy for young children, adults over age 65, pregnant women, and people with heart and/or lung disease, asthma or other respiratory illness. Outdoor activity should be minimized. Around 3 miles, young children, adults over age 65, pregnant women, and people with heart and/or lung disease, asthma or other respiratory illness should avoid all outdoor activities. Around 1 mile, the air quality is unhealthy for everyone. People should remain indoors and avoid all outdoor activities including running errands. Unless an evacuation has been issued, stay inside your home, indoor workplace, or in a safe shelter. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic affecting New Mexico and with the wildfire season underway, New Mexicans will need to take extra precautions. Smoke from wildfires may cause people to have more severe reactions if they are infected COVID-19. The best way to protect against the potentially harmful effects of wildfire smoke and to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is to stay home and create a clean indoor air space. NMDOH offers tips here: https://nmtracking.doh.nm.gov/environment/air/IndoorQuality.html and https://cv.nmhealth.org New Mexicans will also need to take steps to keep their homes cool to avoid heat-related illnesses.
