Air Quality Advisory

Air Quality Advisory through Tuesday, November 20, due to heavy wildfire smoke impacts in parts of the Bay Area from the Camp Fire in Butte County. See our Wildfire Safety Tips web page.

Air Quality Widgets

The Air District offers a free Spare the Air Alert Status widget that you can add to your website to show current, local air quality alert status.

Announcement: The Air District is currently switching all widgets to a new system. Existing widgets will be ending service and website administrators will need to replace the existing widget code on their websites with updated code for the replacement widgets. The new widgets are not yet available. Updates and new widgets will continue to be provided on this page. We apologize for any inconvenience.

What is a Widget?

Widgets are mini-applications that can be added to a web page (but can’t be added to your computer’s desktop). We provide a small paragraph of code that you add to your website. The Air District’s Spare the Air Alert Status widget, for example, shows the alert status for the current day.

Air District Widgets:

Spare the Air Alert Status Widget

Place the Spare the Air Alert Status widget on your website. The widget shows "Spare the Air" during the summer season and "Check Before You Burn" during the winter season. The widget also connects you to the Spare the Air website.

Summer Season: The widget shows whether the Air District has called a “Spare the Air Alert” predicting unhealthy air in the Bay Area. A Spare the Air Alert asks you to make an extra effort to keep the air clean on that day.

Winter Season:The widget shows when wood burning is allowed. When a “Winter Spare the Air Alert” is called, it is illegal to use fireplaces, woodstoves, pellet stoves, or other wood-burning devices.
