Update- 5 p.m. Monday. The Missoula City County Health Department has upgraded the Stage One Alert to a Stage Two Warning.

As of 10 AM Monday a Stage I Air Alert has been called for Missoula and air quality is Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups in Missoula and Frenchtown.

Woodstove restrictions are in effect for the Missoula Air Stagnation Zone.

Inside the Missoula Air Stagnation Zone, visible emissions are not allowed from woodstoves, fireplaces or other solid fuel burning devices without a Stage I Alert permit.  The department request that people with Stage I Alert Permits minimize their use of wood stoves and if you do burn wood, burn as cleanly as possible.

Call the air quality hotline at 258-3600 on weekends to get the most current air quality update.

If you operate a woodstove, fireplace or other solid-fuel burning device, you will want to get in the habit of checking the Air Quality hotline at 258-3600 for up-to-date changes in Missoula’s air quality.  Woodstoves, fireplaces and other solid-fuel burning devices are restricted during alerts and warnings.
