The Yavapai County Community Health Services department is announcing that smoke from the Doce fire has caused air quality in Chino Valley to reach dangerous levels.

Rules of thumb still apply. If things that are five to 10 miles away are still visible, people can be reasonably sure that smoke inhalation will not cause a medical emergency.

The health department is monitoring local conditions and will send out alerts as needed. Anyone who feels faint or sick should immediately contact a doctor.

More air quality information is available at www.azdeq.gov.

Some tips for avoiding smoke:

• Stay inside with the windows closed and your AC on. If you don't have AC go to a local mall or store that has AC.

• Avoid tobacco smoke, kerosene heaters, frying or boiling foods and vacuuming.

• Avoid exercising outdoors.
