A Spare the Air Alert is in effect, Sunday, October 3, for the San Francisco Bay Area.  


It is illegal for Bay Area residents and businesses to burn wood indoors or outdoors.

Hot inland temperature combined with smoke from wildfires is currently impacting air quality in portions of the Bay Area. Concentrations of ground-level ozone AND particulate matter pollution are forecast to be unhealthy. High levels of ozone and particulate matter pollution are harmful to breathe, especially for young children, seniors and those with respiratory and heart conditions. It is illegal for Bay Area residents and businesses to burn wood or manufactured firelogs in fireplaces, woodstoves and inserts, pellet stoves, outdoor fire pits, or any other wood burning devices.

You can help protect your health by staying indoors and avoiding unnecessary outdoor activities.

This AirAlert is provided by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. Thank you for doing your part to Spare the Air!
