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
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.
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.
