While air quality in Broward County falls within the "Good" category about 87% of the time, there are occasionally days where the air quality conditions may become adverse and people - especially children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing respiratory illnesses - may need to take certain precautions.

EnviroFlash is a system that sends e-mails about your daily air quality forecast plus suggested safety measures when levels are unhealthy.

Exposure to high levels of air pollution can aggravate heart disease, asthma and other respiratory diseases. By being aware of the air quality levels, you can take precautions to protect your family.
 
Air quality monitors take in information that is used to calculate the current Air Quality Index value. Broward County issues air quality forecasts based on measured air quality and weather information. The forecast is then sent out through EnviroFlash.
