Another Spare the Air alert issued

FAIRFIELD — The Bay Area Air Quality Management District issued yet another winter Spare the Air Alert for Sunday.

The alert bans the burning of wood, manufactured logs or any other solid fuel indoors and outdoors for 24 hours.

A lack of precipitation and wind has kept stagnant air over the region for much of the month, prompting repeated air quality alerts.

With the alert in effect, it is illegal for Bay Area residents and businesses to use their fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves, outdoor fire pits or any other wood-burning devices. Homes without permanently installed heating, where wood stoves or fireplaces are the only source of heat, are exempt.

Wood smoke is the major source of air pollution in the Bay Area in the winter and is especially harmful to children, the elderly and people with respiratory conditions, the air quality district has said.

First-time violators have the option of taking a wood-smoke awareness class online or by mail, in lieu of paying a $100 ticket.

Second violations will result in a $500 ticket, and subsequent ticket amounts will be higher.

The public must check before they burn during the Winter Spare the Air season, which runs from Nov. 1 through Feb. 28. The daily burn status can be found:

• On the Air District websites: www.baaqmd.gov or www.sparetheair.org.

• Via the toll-free hotline 877-4-NO-BURN (complaints can also be filed via the hotline).

• By signing up for AirAlerts at www.sparetheair.org or phone alerts at 800-430-1515.

• Via the Spare the Air iPhone and Android apps.

    I hear ya, Jazz. Did you see that other story today about how news outlet websites can't figure out how to censor dissenting comments well enough so some are even doing away with comments altogether? I wonder if the DR has had discussions like that?

So if this one makes it you got me by the you know what>>LOL. When I try, it comes back and says that I have already posted that, BUT IT HAS NEVER appeared. Good OLD Daily Repulsive :-)

    JA: Waiting to see if you're right about New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. BAAQMD has to forecast conditions, and they're not always right. Today seems to have some turbulence, so I'm thinking they were wrong about today, at least for our East Bay area. I have a stack of firewood ready to go.

    Yup a tad breezy out there, so they appear to be wrong as usual, although not sure about the rest of the Bay Area all the way down to Fremont south of us and San Fran & all. One reason I say that a politician with some GUTS ought to start the process to yank us out of that CRAP..

    Now I am going to test my theory about why my other one is not being posted, here goes with some modifications, since MAN DO I HATE censorship, unless the post is abusive or crude. Here goes, and too bad that I can't Paragraph in here :-): Well I will try my POST AGAIN , NOT SHOWING UP!!!!!>>>> It is N_zi Germany and the Soviet Regime all over again. The Air Board can K_SS THIS!!!!!!!! There is not one local politician with guts enough to get us out of that Bay Area mess, that should NOT INCLUDE US, especially with our Suisun Breezes. Wish I had the cash to run for local office. I'd get ER DONE. B_RN B_BY B_RN.
