What is the Air Quality Health Index?
The Air Quality Health Index or "AQHI" is a scale designed to help you understand what the air quality around you means to your health. It is a health protection tool designed to help you make decisions to protect your health by limiting short-term exposure to air pollution and adjusting your daily plans and activities according to the potential health impacts of the daily AQHI ratings.
