Environment Canada continues to have a special air quality statement in effect for the Town of Drumheller.
Smoke from forest fires in the Northwestern United States has created poor air quality over much of Southern Alberta, including Drumheller. With these conditions, you may experience temporary eye and throat irritation as well as shortness of breath.
It is recommended to close windows and doors, reduce fan speeds, and close the fresh air intake on air conditioners to prevent smoke from getting inside your home. For individuals with respiratory issues, please monitor symptoms and take precautions as recommended by their doctor.
