Do You Know What Ozone Color Warnings Mean?

Typically in the summertime you hear about ozone warnings, but you may not realize how the different color warnings can affect your health.

Some people are more sensitive than others to the effects high ozone warnings can produce.

The Air Quality Index (AQI), can help you recognize what the different ozone color warnings mean in relation to your health.

Green – Air quality conditions are good, meaning little or no risk.

Yellow – Air quality conditions are moderate, meaning some pollutants may cause some health concerns for a small number of people.

Orange – Air quality conditions are unhealthy for certain groups, and the general public is not likely to be affected.

Red – Air quality conditions are unhealthy, meaning everyone may begin to experience health effects.

Purple – Air quality conditions are very unhealthy for the entire population.

Maroon – Air quality conditions are hazardous, meaning everyone may experience more serious health effects.
