Air Quality Wants You to
"Check the AQI & Get Outside"
For National Air Quality Awareness Week, the Clark County Department of Air Quality will be active in the community and on social media. We want you to Check the AQI and Get Outside!
WHAT IS AQI?
The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a measurement for reporting daily air quality and is color-coded to indicate how clean or polluted the air is and what associated health effects may be a concern. The AQI focuses on health effects people may experience within a few hours or days after breathing polluted air.
