Air Quality Alert: High health risk for Canada's Northern Territories
Environment Canada has issued a high health risk warning for Yellowknife and surrounding area because of heavy smoke in the region due to forest fires. Currently 160 wildfires are burning across the region.
This satellite image was collected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Aqua satellite on July 20, 2014. Actively burning areas, detected by MODIS’s thermal bands, are outlined in red.
Fire danger in this area remains very high to extreme, with no discernible change in that forecast in the near future.
AllerAir's industrial air purifiers for smoke have been used by homeowners, businesses and medical facilities in both wildfire and active volcano areas across the U.S. and Canada. They feature extra deep activated carbon filters (same material used in military gas masks) that adsorb smoke odors and chemical by-products.
If you are in an affected area, or live in a region prone to wildfires or smoke from industrial processes, contact an Air Quality Expert at 1-888-852-8247 to learn more about our units. You can also chat live:
