DHEC Celebrates Air Quality Awareness Week

Air Quality Awareness Week (AQAW) 2022 has been designated as May 2 – May 6. AQAW corresponds with ozone season, wildfire season, and World Asthma Day. The theme for AQAW 2022 is “Be Air Aware & Prepared.”  

The daily topics include: 

Celebrate this week by doing your share to spare the air! 

  • Use electric powered lawn equipment. 
  • Keep your vehicle maintained to reduce emissions.  
  • Combine trips and errands. 
  • Park instead of waiting in line at drive-through windows to reduce idling time.  
  • Telecommute or work a flex schedule if possible.
