Health Advisory for Tehama County Residents for August 10, 2015

The Tehama County Air Pollution Control District is issuing a health advisory to Tehama County residents this afternoon due to wildfire smoke from fires currently burning throughout Northern California.

Air quality throughout much of the Tehama County is forecast to reach unhealthy levels today due to elevated particulate levels from the wildfires.

Tehama County residents are advised to:

  • Go to our Air Quality page or Airfire.org to check real-time air quality.
  • Reduce exposure to smoky air by remaining indoors with windows and doors closed.
  • Set air conditioning units and car vent systems to re-circulate.
  • If air smells of smoke, limit outdoor activities to avoid unnecessary exposure.
  • If you have asthma or other lung disease, make sure you follow your doctor's directions about taking your medicines and following your asthma management plan. Call your doctor if your symptoms worsen.
  • If you have heart or lung disease, if you are an older adult, or if you have children, talk with your doctor about whether and when you should leave the area.

  • CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Exchange – Compost Additions to Grazed Grasslands

    On June 9, 2015 the Tehama County Board of Supervisor’s approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Tehama County Air Pollution Control District (TCAPCD) and Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) to indirectly participate in the CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Exchange. This exchange is a completely voluntary program. The California Air Pollution Control Officers Association (CAPCOA), representing California's 35 local air districts, has launched the CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Exchange. The Exchange provides a reliable, low-cost, secure platform to encourage locally generated, high quality GHG emission reduction credits that can be used to meet CEQA or other compliance requirements. Studies have shown that a one-time application of compost to grazed grasslands can have lasting co-benefits including locally-improved air quality, accelerated plant growth, and increased water-hold capacity in grasslands.
