Wildfire Smoke Advisories

Smoke advisories are issued for large fires in or near the South Coast AQMD jurisdiction and are intended to provide a summary of current/past air quality and provide predictions of future smoke impacts. Even in areas far from fires or areas not covered by a smoke advisory, if you can smell smoke or see ash from a wildfire, avoid or limit outdoor activities. For information about the effects of wildfires on your health, and how to reduce exposures, please see our Wildfire Smoke & Ash Health & Safety Tips page
