News Briefs – June 28, 2013

Fires cause hazardous air quality

Air quality in portions of Cochise County may currently be hazardous because of the potential for heavy smoke from three fires burning near Cananea, Mexico. Excessive, persistent air pollution is a health threat, especially to children, the elderly and those with pre-existing health problems.

During periods of heavy smoke, stay indoors with doors and windows closed. If the home has air conditioning, use it, but keep the fresh air intake closed and the filter clean. Do not use an evaporative cooler.

If it looks smoky outside, it is not a good time to engage in outdoor activities.

City plans annual street maintenance

Planned street maintenance, applying chip seal to mostly residential streets in Sierra Vista, is underway and will continue for approximately two weeks depending on weather and materials availability. If impacted, residents can expect to receive a flyer providing detailed information, including dates and times, approximately 24 to 48 hours prior to work on their streets.

It is difficult to predict an exact time the process will start and end on each street. At times, traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction resulting in traffic delays. When travelling through the construction areas, use caution and obey all traffic control devices.

For questions and more information, call the City of Sierra Vista’s Engineering Division, 458.5775.
