JUST PUTTING THIS OUT THERE FOR THOSE WHO CARE.

Spare the Air Tonight, Tuesday, November 6, in the San Francisco Bay Area.


The air quality tonight is forecast to be unhealthy. The Bay Area Air District is asking residents to refrain from burning wood in their fireplaces and woodstoves, and to drive less.


Winter air pollution is mainly caused by small particle pollution, or particulate matter (PM). The two major winter sources of PM in the Bay Area are residential wood burning and motor vehicles.


You can help reduce winter air pollution if you:


- Do NOT burn wood tonight.
- Postpone errands and link necessary trips
- Use public transit whenever possible
- Retrofit your fireplace to burn natural gas, a cleaner alternative to wood burning.


This advisory is in effect for the next 24 hours. For up-to-date public transit information, visit www.511.org. There is NO free transit program during the winter Spare the Air Tonight season.
