Maine DEP Issues Air Quality Alert for Tuesday, August 7, 2018

AUGUSTA, Maine — Ground-level ozone concentrations will be climbing in Maine on Tuesday and are expected to reach unhealthy levels according to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).  On Monday afternoon ozone levels began building in the New York City/Long Island Sound area.  Winds are expected to bring these high levels of ozone to Maine and travel down the coast on Tuesday.  A front bringing clouds & showers will be building in from the northwest but is not expected to reach the coast until the evening hours.  Prior to that sunshine along the transport route will further contribute to ozone build up.  In addition, particle pollution levels are expected to be moderate statewide.  Furthermore, heat advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service.  This combination of heat, humidity and poor air quality will exacerbate the effects of each.
At elevated ozone levels, children, healthy adults who exert themselves, and individuals suffering from a respiratory disease such as asthma, bronchitis or COPD can experience reduced lung function and irritation.  When this happens, individuals may notice a shortness of breath, coughing, throat irritation, and/or experience an uncomfortable sensation in their chest.
Some actions you can take to protect your health during periods of unhealthy air quality include:
  • Adjusting your schedule to avoid strenuous outdoor activity during the afternoon.
  • Please consult the Maine CDC website for information on the health impacts of extreme heat and appropriate actions to take (http://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/environmental-health/heat/).
  • The Maine CDC Asthma Prevention and Control Program has asthma information available at their web site: http://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/population-health/mat/index.htm
  • For more information on asthma control visit EPA's Web site www.epa.gov/asthma  to find information about asthma triggers and lessons on asthma management. In addition to those in a sensitive group, sports coaches, elder care workers, nurses and others who are responsible for the welfare of people impacted by poor air quality are urged to use one of the listed tools to follow the Air Quality Forecast:
For more information call DEP's toll free air quality hotline is 1-800-223-1196 or visit DEP’s air quality web site http://www.maine.gov/dep/air/ozone/.

...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EDT TUESDAY...

The National Weather Service in Gray has issued a Heat Advisory,
which is in effect until 7 PM EDT Tuesday.

* Heat Index Values...In the mid 90s due to temperatures in the
  lower 90s, and dewpoints around 70.

* Timing...This afternoon. Temperatures are expected to approach
  90 Tuesday afternoon, and combined with high humidity heat
  index values will once again climb into the mid 90s.

* Impacts...The combination of heat and humidity will make it
  more difficult for the body to naturally cool itself,
  increasing the risk of heat stress and related conditions.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned
room...stay out of the sun...and check up on relatives and
neighbors, especially older adults who live alone, to make sure
they are able to stay cool.

People who work or exercise outside or in hot environments, and
children attending summer camps or outdoor sports practices
should take extra precautions. When possible...reschedule
strenuous activities to early morning. Know the signs and
symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight
and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of
water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work...the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.   Heat stroke
is an emergency...call 9 1 1.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned
room...stay out of the sun...and check up on relatives and
neighbors, especially older adults who live alone, to make sure
they are able to stay cool.

   People who work or exercise outside or in hot environments,
and children attending summer camps or outdoor sports practices
should take extra precautions. When possible...reschedule
strenuous activities to early morning. Know the signs and
symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight
and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of
water.

   To reduce risk during outdoor work...the occupational safety
and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest
breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome
by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.   Heat
stroke is an emergency...call 9 1 1.
