REMSA has issued precautionary instructions on dealing with the unhealthy air quality conditions.
For those with respiratory conditions, or those considered in the sensitive group for air quality conditions, REMSA strongly suggests taking these precautions:
Most importantly, if you have a respiratory condition and are experiencing increasing shortness of breath or breathing difficulties, call 9-1-1. Do NOT attempt to drive yourself to an emergency room or urgent care. Your condition could become life-threatening within minutes.
REMSA monitors trends in categories of calls through its “first watch” bio surveillance system, and although this morning they have not seen an increase in respiratory related calls, they are concerned about what might occur as residents get up and get going to work or school.
