Advice and alerts for people susceptible to air pollution

You can register to have air quality warnings sent straight to your telephone, mobile phone or computer when there's a forecast of poor air quality or pollution.

This is useful if you, or someone you care for, suffers from:

  • asthma
  • emphysema
  • bronchitis
  • heart disease
  • angina.

How do I register?

The website also contains a leaflet providing some basic advice.

The alert service is designed to help you ensure that you have any necessary medication to hand and are prepared for the poorer air quality.
