Attention Greene County Residents
Due to the wildfires in Canada, we are experiencing heavy smoke conditions in the county and throughout the Capital District and the Hudson Valley areas.
The National Weather Service has issued an air quality alert for our area. Particulate concentrations are above 2.5 and people with respiratory issues should not go outside for prolonged periods of time.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL 911 TO REPORT SMOKE IN THE AREA.
Greene County Emergency Services will be distributing N-95 masks throughout the county in an effort to minimize health risks due to the Canadian wildfires. These masks will help to filter the fine particulate matter in the air, which can cause short-term health effects such as irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, coughing, and shortness of breath. Those with underlying health conditions, especially lung and heart conditions, are encouraged to stay indoors at this time to reduce exposure.
