AIR QUALITY ADVISORY - UPDATE

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --

The 30th Medical Group continued conducting Air Quality checks on North Base throughout the night. The Reading currently is showing in the “Good” range on the Environmental Protection Agency Air Quality Index.

 

Overnight, a few of the readings slightly reached into the “Moderate” range. In the “Moderate” range, smoke can be an irritant to eyes and nose, but does not pose a health hazard. “Moderate” air quality is only a concern for those who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. When air quality is “Moderate”, those individuals should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion if they experience coughing or shortness of breath. If you experience prolonged symptoms, please take precautions and remain indoors.

 

As of 7:00 a.m., Wednesday morning, the reading on North Base is showing in the “Good” range.

 

For questions or concerns call the advice nurse at 606-2273, option 5.
