STATION FIRE UPDATE FOR PASADENA – 9/4/09

Station Fire Update Pasadena CAPasadena is out of harm’s way at this time as the Station Fire continues to burn in the Angeles National Forest. As of today the fire is 42 percent contained.

The Pasadena Public Health Department reminds everyone that although air quality has improved today, it still remains unhealthy for people with health issues.

Schools that are in session, after-school programs and children’s sports organizations should consider limiting outdoor activities.

Even when there is no odor of smoke, individuals with respiratory or heart disease, pregnant women, elderly persons and children should continue to take precautions when they are outside.

Results from local air monitoring indicate that air quality is most unhealthy in the morning hours but tends to improve throughout the day.

Hot weather continues but is expected to decrease slightly. Tips for staying cool include wearing light, loose-fitting clothing, drinking plenty of water and fluids, avoiding alcoholic beverages and staying in air conditioned areas during peak hours.
