Now you can receive Air Quality Alerts and daily air quality forecasts wherever you are — at home, at work, or on the go.

Your local air quality affects how you live and breathe. Like the weather, it can change from day to day, or even hour to hour. Up-to-date information allows you to make decisions based on forecasted air quality. EnviroFlash comes to you, notifying you about air quality — you don't have to go searching for it.

EnviroFlash can e-mail or send a text message. Subscribers receive Air Quality Alerts, and you can choose to receive air quality forecasts and at what level to be notified. EnviroFlash gives you instant information that you can customize for your own needs, allowing you to protect the health of you and your family. Air quality information allows you to adjust your lifestyle when necessary on unhealthy air quality days. EnviroFlash is especially helpful for people who are more sensitive to the effects of air pollution, such as the young, people with asthma, and seniors.

You can use a regular e-mail address or you can choose to have the notices sent as text messages to your cell phone.

EnviroFlash is a project of the U.S. EPA, working with a contractor and with state and local environmental agencies like the APCD.
