Special Air Quality Statement

Issued at 23:29 Monday 23 October 2017

Summary

Smoke is causing poor air quality and reducing visibility. Smoke is expected or occurring. Smoke from a fire near Camp Gagetown is currently impacting the greater Fredericton area. While indications suggest the smoke has dissipated, conditions are favourable for more smoke to affect the regions overnight and Tuesday morning. ### Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk. People with lung diseases, such as asthma and COPD, can be particularly sensitive to air pollution. They will generally experience more serious health effects at lower levels. Pollution can aggravate their diseases, leading to increased medication use, doctor and emergency room visits, and hospital visits. Visit www.airhealth.ca for information on how to reduce your health risk and your personal contribution to pollution levels, as well as for current and forecast AQHI values. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
