...Air Quality Alert in effect Friday for Huntsville and Decatur...


The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) has issued

an Air Quality Alert for Madison and Morgan counties, for Friday,

June 9.


An air quality alert means that ground level ozone or particulate

matter concentrations are expected to reach levels that are unhealthy

for sensitive groups. Children and people with asthma are at the

highest risk under these expected conditions.


ADEM recommends the following actions during an air quality alert

day:


Conserve electricity and set your air conditioner at a higher

temperature.


Limit driving and combine errands.


Use the bus or car pool to work.


Avoid use of gasoline power lawn and garden equipment.


Refuel cars and trucks after 6 pm.


Limit engine idling.


Use household, workshop, and garden chemicals in ways that keep

evaporation to a minimum, or try to avoid them when poor air quality

is forecast.


If breathing becomes difficult, move indoors.
