Short-Term Air Quality

|   Health

Due to prescribed burns scheduled for today, there will be short-term air quality impacts locally, in the area of Pierre Lake. These prescribed burns are preventative and intend to reduce the extreme fire risks we face each summer. People that may be sensitive to smoke should limit time outdoors in the areas around Pierre Lake. People with health conditions may have worsened symptoms. Increase rest periods as needed if involved in physical activities outdoors.
