PEOPLE with breathing problems such as asthma can now use a free service that will warn them when air quality is likely to be poor.
North Herts District Council has joined other local councils to subscribe to the airAlert scheme provided by the Herts & Beds Air Quality Network.
Warnings about predicted poor quality air can be sent directly to people who have access to email or mobile phones.
They can then make informed decisions about what action to take, such as avoiding certain areas or carrying medication. airAlert warning levels cover moderate, high and very high.

The council is very pleased to subscribe to such a worthwhile scheme and we do hope that everyone who could benefit from it signs up without delay."
