Air monitoring has shown that the Central Zone is no longer being impacted by smoke from wildfires burning in northern Alberta at this time.
Though forecasting also suggests that these improved air quality conditions will be sustained, Albertans are reminded that air quality can vary with weather conditions and prevailing winds.
Information about the air quality in many areas of Alberta is updated regularly at www.airquality.alberta.ca. Air quality information is also available by phone, toll-free, at 1-877-247-7333. All Active Health Advisories issued by AHS – including Air Quality Advisories – can be viewed online.
Residents with health concerns can also contact Health Link to speak to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at 811.
Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta.
