Wildfires Affecting Local Air Quality

Wildfires in northern Alberta are resulting in fluctuating Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) readings that range from high to low risk.  Alberta Health Services issued an air qualityhealth advisory May 26 for the region because of smoky conditions. We encourage people to check the AQHI on this page frequently for current and forecast numbers and take appropriate action depending you and your family’s age and health. The AQHI general health guidelines provides advice on what to do for various risk levels.

About Us in 134 words

We monitor the air you breathe by collecting air quality data throughout a 4,500 square kilometre airshed. We are next door to Edmonton and with Alberta’s Industrial Heartland within our borders, we encompass some of the most condensed industrial development in the province. Air quality in our region is considered good, as measured by the Air Quality Health Index.

FAP’s collection and reporting on substances that affect air quality is rigorously controlled, monitored and guided by objectives set by government. Our work is transparent, guided by an expert scientific advisory group, and driven by national and provincial standards. Continuous one-minute data is collected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by FAP and is available to anyone. We invite you to find out more about what substances we monitor and how we monitor.
