A Spare the Air Alert is in effect, Tuesday, August 1, for the San Francisco Bay Area. Concentrations of ground-level ozone pollution are forecast to be unhealthy. High levels of ozone pollution are harmful to breathe, especially for young children, seniors and those with respiratory and heart conditions. Exhaust from vehicles on Bay Area roads accounts for more than half of the air pollution in the region. Bay Area residents are asked to drive less to reduce smog and improve air quality in the region. Residents are also encouraged to consider an all-electric vehicle as their next vehicle purchase to help reduce the amount of gas powered vehicles that contribute to unhealthy smog. Change your daily commute by carpooling, vanpooling, taking transit, biking or walking instead of driving alone. Doing this will help reduce pollution levels and health concerns when temperatures are high. To learn how to change your commute online, visit 511.org (http://511.org). .. Full Story

Wildland Fire Season is Just Around the Corner- Prepare Now! The warm weather we’ve all been waiting for will likely come to Lamorinda this weekend. Last winter’s record setting rainfall created a grass crop that we did not experience during the last few years of drought. All that lush green grass growing on our hillsides and around homes will soon dry and become the tinder that can fuel a fast-moving wildfire. Grass and light brush are considered “flashy fuels” says Kathy Leonard, Moraga-Orinda Fire District’s Fire Marshal. “They catch fire more easily, burn fast and hot and can carry fire to heavier fuels and into homes”. Leonard urges residents to start removing the vegetation that will soon dry from around their structures now. The Fire District is offering residents several tools to help prepare for the impending fire season: Schedule a FireWise Home Assessment- Property owners can call 925-258-4525, Ext. 524 to schedule..
