CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

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:

  • Take the bus, carpool, bike or walk instead of driving
  • Refuel your vehicle after 8 p.m.; do not top off when refueling and tighten the gas cap
  • Do not idle your vehicle
  • Combine trips or eliminate unnecessary vehicle trips
  • Keep your vehicle maintained with properly inflated tires and timely oil changes
  • Avoid use of gasoline-powered lawn equipment on Air Quality Advisory days
  • Avoid use of oil-based paints and stains on Air Quality Advisory days 
  • Never burn leaves or other yard trimmings
  • Always burn clean, seasoned wood in outdoor fire pits, fireplaces and wood stoves
  • Avoid using fire pits or fireplaces for non-essential home heating on Air Quality Advisory days
  • Conserve electricity

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.
