Bay Area Hot Weather Prompts ‘Spare The Air Day’
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Saturday is the first Spare the Air day of the summer season.
On these Spare the Air days, The Bay Area Air Quality Management District urges residents to cut back on any activities that cause pollution – such as driving, using oil-based paints, gasoline-powered lawn mowers, or household aerosol products like hair sprays.
People who are sensitive to unhealthy air are advised to limit their time outdoors, particularly in the afternoon hours.
