Clark County’s Department of Air Quality (DAQ) issued an advisory for Monday, July 25 and Tuesday, July 26, for potentially elevated levels of ozone and smoke due to the Sand wildfire burning in Southern California north of Los Angeles.
Air Quality officials say smoke is made of small dust particles and other pollutants that can aggravate respiratory diseases and contribute to ground-level ozone formation.
At this time, unhealthy for sensitive groups levels of fine particles (PM2.5) may occur. People who may be most sensitive to elevated levels of ozone and smoke include individuals with respiratory problems, cardiac disease, young children or senior citizens.
