An Action Day has been declared for Norco/Corona, California, on Monday, December 6, 2010
AQMD has declared a Residential No-Burn Advisory (Voluntary) in your area.
This means that AQMD requests your voluntary curtailment of the use of indoor/outdoor wood-burning fireplaces and stoves because air quality in your area is predicted to be Unhealthy or worse for Sensitive Groups.
When a residential no-burn advisory is issued for your area, please refrain from burning wood throughout the entire day.
This program is being implemented under AQMD Rule 445 and will involve mandatory wood burning restrictions starting in November 2011. Until then, participation in the program is voluntary. The rule only affects indoor/outdoor residential wood burning from the beginning of November through the end of February. Burn restrictions are expected to be infrequent during these months. This rule only applies to residences in the South Coast Air Basin at elevations below 3000 feet.
