Comments on: Question of the Week: What do you do to "Be Air Aware" when planning outdoor activities? http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/05/qotw-air-aware/ The EPA Blog Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:00:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: David Lynch http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/05/qotw-air-aware/#comment-19192 Mon, 10 May 2010 09:41:35 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=2792#comment-19192 I think we should always be vigilant about the air we breath every time we leave our houses and venture out. Although most of us don’t show symptoms like others who have allergies or breathing problems we still need to be aware of the damage it can be doing to us regardless. We usually head to the fresh air of the beach on our days off or do a little bush walking so we do activities that are away from pollution although not always possible.

I also suffer from pollen allergies so l can imagine how it can irritate others.We are quite conscience when we are out and about to observe that others are at least trying to help our environment.Its people driving cars that blow smoke like there is no tomorrow that bug us some people just won’t do there little bit. If and when we all band together in this issue we won’t know the place in years to come.

1. Seasons and pollen
2. Winds and dust
3. Smog and orders
4. Anything that involves breathing.
My grand-daughter has good days and bad days depending on how we plan outdoor activities.

If the air is too polluted stay inside. If you need the air conditioner on to help you breath, you should use it. But I am lucky in the condo I,m in that because of the way the building is situated, I seldom have my air conditioner on and the condo still stays comfortable. One more very important thing. If you need to use an inhailer, make sure it goes with you whenever you go somewhere and keep it close when you are at home. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
