Health District changes burn code from Red to Green


Health District changes Burn Code from Red to Green.

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


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.

Check for more information and for hourly AQI updates for the Reno/Sparks area. Residents and media can also follow or like us on Twitter and Facebook.
