Finally, it’s starting to warm up in Greater Cincinnati! Warmer temperatures equal more time outside, but it also means the Air Quality Alert Season has already started.
Higher levels of ozone pollution that come with sun and high temperatures are especially troublesome for those with sensitive breathing issues or respiratory disease during the warmer months of the year. For this reason, air quality season lasts from March through October.
Every year, OKI partners with other agencies to notify the public when pollution levels have become unhealthy for sensitive groups including children and older adults.
