Wildfire season prompts air quality warning, suggestions


Smoke covers a hillside along Highway 178 during a brush fire on July 31, 2017.

The arrival of wildfire season threatens to bring smoke into the San Joaquin Valley, according to a Valley Air District news release Wednesday, which also mentioned how residents can prepare for threats to air quality from air pollution.

Residents should change out air filters in their home and set up a clean air room when smoke impacts become severe, according to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, which also offered several suggestions on how to do just that.
