The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency has issued an Air Quality Advisory for parts of the Tri-State on Thursday. With the heat rising, the CRC has also opened their "Cool Centers."
The advisory is for Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties in Ohio and Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Kentucky.
During an Air Quality Advisory, it's advised that active children and adults, and people with respiratory diseases, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion.
On Air Quality Advisory days, you can help reduce air pollution by taking the following actions:
The Cincinnati Recreation Commission Centers will be open during normal business hours to serve as "Cool Centers."
You can also beat the heat by visiting a CRC pool or sprayground.
All pools have daily rates and spraygrounds are free of charge.
