WHERE...Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western

WHEN...400 PM Tuesday September 29 to 400 PM Wednesday September

IMPACTS...Action Day for Particulates is now in effect for the
seven-county Denver-Boulder metropolitan area. Requests to limit
driving of non- ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel) are now in
effect until at least 4 PM Wednesday, September 30, 2020.  Smoke
from several local wildfires has settled overnight into the Front
Range region and resulted in Fine Particulate concentrations in
the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups to Unhealthy range. Please see
the Front Range Air Quality Forecast below for details.  For areas
included in this advisory that are not expected to exceed the
Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (USG) air quality designation, we
request that activities, such as driving non- ZEV vehicles (i.e.,
gas or diesel), be reduced to lessen the impacts on neighboring
air quality. Additional air pollution in this region may directly
worsen air quality or contribute to precursors which may also
adversely affect air quality.  For Colorado air quality

HEALTH INFORMATION...If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your
neighborhood you may want to remain indoors. This is especially
true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very
young, and the elderly. Consider limiting outdoor activity when
moderate to heavy smoke is present. Consider relocating
temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is making you ill. If
visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in your neighborhood,
smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
