The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) is a tool available for Albertans to learn what the air quality around various Alberta communities means to individual health. The AQHI provides a number from 1 to 10 to indicate the level of health risk associated with local air quality. The higher the AQHI number, the greater the health risk and need to take precautions. This app provides updated AQHI readings and daily forecasts for more than 20 communities. The AQHI is paired with advice about limiting exposure to air pollution and adjusting activity levels when air quality is poor. Special community level messaging is displayed when odour or visibility events occur. For more information visit: airquality.alberta.ca.
