OK or Not OK? Fireplaces and Wood Stoves–When Not to Light

YoloSolanoThe Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District (AQMD) asks residents to check ahead before lighting their fireplaces or wood stoves. Air pollution levels and potential health impacts can increase under certain weather conditions. Overnight temperature inversions, dry weather and a lack of wind can contribute to a negative air quality forecast.

Residents can sign up for e-mail or text message alerts at http://ysaqmd.enviroflash.org.  Advisories also appear on the AQMD’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/YoloSolanoAir.
