High Pollution Advisory Program
In the event that Maricopa County deems
the level of pollution unhealthy, a high
pollution advisory will be issued. In
that event, post your HPA signs at all
entrances at all agencies and
distribute/forward the e-mail detailing
the advisory. Your HPA sign should
look like the picture to the right.
March 2016 Update
Dear Travel Reduction Coordinator:
The weather is warming up!
With warmer weather comes ozone
pollution and the start of the Summer High Pollution
Advisory (HPA) Season. The Summer HPA season runs from April
1 – September 30. The Winter HPA season runs from October 1
- March 31.
Attached you will find an information
release, a program component outline, and a logo sheet. This
information has already been sent to your PIO/newsletter
Your role in the HPA program is
simple. First, you will soon be receiving an electronic
brochure regarding ozone. We will also include some sample
email language to accompany the brochure. Please pass this
on to your employees. Normally we print this item but due to
budget constraints, we are only issuing it electronically
Other duties are equally simple. Each
Monday we will email the Weekly Air Quality Forecast (AQF)
to you. Please pass it along to your employees via email.
Additionally, anytime an HPA is issued, please post your HPA
signs immediately and notify your employees. If you need
additional HPA signs, please call our office and we will
send them to you. Remember to post them on the day prior to
the HPA; and take them down at the end of the HPA day – if
it has not been extended.
Your participation in this effort is
crucial. We sincerely appreciate your assistance in this
program. You will be receiving the electronic ozone brochure
in the next week. And your weekly AQF will start on the
first Monday in April (April 4).
If you have any questions, please
contact our office.
