It Continues - CONTINUED AIR QUALITY ADVISORY

Metro Vancouver is continuing an Air Quality Advisory for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley because high concentrations of fine particulate matter due to smoke from wildfires burning in British Columbia and the western United States are anticipated over the next few days. Fine particulate matter concentrations this morning have been at levels normally expected for the area but air quality is expected to deteriorate later.

Smoke concentrations may vary widely across the region as winds and temperatures change, and as wildfire behaviour changes.

Fine particulate matter, also known as PM2.5, refers to airborne solid or liquid droplets with a diameter of 2.5 micrometres (µm) or less. PM2.5 can easily penetrate indoors because of its small size.

Information about real-time air quality readings for Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley communities and potential health impacts can be found at www.airmap.ca

 

Canadians wishing to make a financial donation to help those impacted by the B.C. fires can do so by calling 1 800 418-1111, contacting their local Canadian Red Cross office or online: www.redcross.ca

The B.C. government declared a provincial state of emergency on Aug. 15 to support the province wide response to the ongoing wildfire situation. The Province will match donations until Oct. 12, 2018.
