AIR QUALITY LEVELS IN OUTDOOR AIR ARE PREDICTED TO BE GREATER THAN  
AN AIR QUALITY INDEX VALUE OF 100 FOR THE POLLUTANT OF GROUND LEVEL  
OZONE. THE AIR QUALITY INDEX, OR AQI, WAS CREATED AS AN EASY WAY TO  
CORRELATE LEVELS OF DIFFERENT POLLUTANTS TO ONE SCALE. THE HIGHER  
THE AQI VALUE, THE GREATER THE HEALTH CONCERN.  
 
WHEN POLLUTION LEVELS ARE ELEVATED, THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF  
HEALTH RECOMMENDS THAT INDIVIDUALS CONSIDER LIMITING STRENUOUS  
OUTDOOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ADVERSE HEALTH  
EFFECTS. PEOPLE WHO MAY BE ESPECIALLY SENSITIVE TO THE EFFECTS OF  
ELEVATED LEVELS OF POLLUTANTS INCLUDE THE VERY YOUNG, AND THOSE WITH  
PREEXISTING RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS SUCH AS ASTHMA OR HEART DISEASE.  
THOSE WITH SYMPTOMS SHOULD CONSIDER CONSULTING THEIR PERSONAL  
PHYSICIAN.  
 
A TOLL FREE AIR QUALITY HOTLINE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED SO NEW YORK  
RESIDENTS CAN STAY INFORMED ON THE AIR QUALITY SITUATION. THE TOLL  
FREE NUMBER IS 1 800 5 3 5, 1 3 4 5.
