Who/What

Health District changes Burn Code from Red to Green.

When

Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 8:00 AM

Where

Reno, Sparks, and Southern Washoe County from Washoe Valley to Silver Knolls

Details

Due to changing weather conditions, air pollution levels have decreased. Therefore, the Washoe County Health District, Air Quality Management Division is rescinding the Red Burn Code and issuing a Green Burn Code.

Rapidly changing winter weather patterns mean that the Air Quality Index (AQI) may also change between Good and Moderate at times meaning unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion.
