Suffer from asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or a respiratory condition?

Sign-up for AirAlert, a free service provided by the Council to help those with respiratory conditions manage their health when air quality is poor. While air pollution levels in Spelthorne are generally Low, on 20 to 30 days per year pollution levels are reached that are capable of causing short term health symptoms for people with pre-existing respiratory conditions.

People who register for the free service receive an email, text or voicemail message, informing them the day before of an expected elevation of air pollution in their area. This enables them to make choices about what they do and how they manage their medication, so they can stay in control of their own health.

Health advice in the AirAlert message is approved by UK experts and varies according to a simple air pollution index (low, moderate, high and very high). The index is based on the levels of five pollutants (nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, ozone, carbon monoxide and particles). For more information on the AirAlert service visit www.airalert.info/Surrey to register. For residents without internet access, please phone 01784 446 251 to sign up.
