Alberta Airsheds Council (AAC) is a partnership of Alberta’s Airsheds and provides leadership in support of healthy air quality for Albertans and the environment.

Wildfire Smoke and Your health

Wildfire smoke can impact your health. Learn about the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) and how to protect yourself and those around you when the air quality is poor.

Be a Champion of Clean Air

Fine particulate matter can be emitted by the burning of fuels. This can include burning gasoline or diesel fuel in vehicle engines, burning fuels or products in industry and burning wood such as campfires.

These fine particles are small enough to breathe into the lungs and can potentially be a human health concern.

Watch these videos to learn how you can clean up the air today. Teachers show our videos in your classrooms. We have free accompanying resources available. 

Your everyday individual actions can clean up the air and make the environment healthier for everyone.

Healthy Communities Breathe Freely

Alberta’s Airsheds operate in local Alberta communities to monitor the quality of the air we breathe. Data from Airshed monitoring stations contributes to the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) which can help you understand how current air quality can impact your health.

Learn more about AQHI, the health risks of poor air quality and what you can do to protect yourself.
