NYC Mayor Adams Addresses Concerns Over Potential Air Quality Haze Alert

By BoroPark24 Staff

NYC Mayor Adams, in a morning press conference focused on safety measures during extreme weather, addressed concerns and discussed worries about a possible air quality haze similar to last summer's.

Emphasizing the importance of preparedness for various weather conditions, the mayor stated, "We want all New Yorkers to enjoy being outside during these beautiful summer days, but we also want to make sure we are all prepared for those days when it’s too hot, as well as for other extreme weather events like hurricanes, flash floods, and wildfire smoke."

The mayor announced updates to the air quality emergency guidelines, highlighting his administration's proactive approach in collaboration with local stakeholders and insights from counterparts in cities like San Francisco.

While New York City often faces Air Quality Health Advisories due to pollutants or ground-level ozone, the precise timing and severity remain unpredictable. The NYC Emergency Management announced that they are monitoring local and upstream conditions, including the wildfire and smoke patterns reaching from Canada, to safeguard public health and safety.
