RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a standardized format for delivering frequently updated web content. RSS feeds often provide headlines along with summaries or full content, meta data such as dates and authors, and links to the original articles. RSS feeds on BAAQMD.gov are indicated by the orange RSS icon followed by the letters RSS: RSS(RSS)

Standard Feeds (3)

1. Spare the Air Alert Status RSS(RSS)

Other methods of notification for Spare the Air Alerts:
Sign up to receive AirAlerts via email or use the Spare the Air Alert Status Widget on your Website.
2. Air Quality Forecast RSS(RSS)
The Air District issues a daily air quality forecast that predicts air pollution levels for the coming five-day period. This forecast uses the U.S. EPA's Air Quality Index scale. For forecasting purposes, cities in the Bay Area have been divided into five reporting zones.
3. Open Burn Status RSS(RSS)
Open burning is generally prohibited within the jurisdiction of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District with regulated exceptions which provide permissive burn periods for certain fires. Most allowable fires are limited to Burn Days, as declared by the Air District, when conditions allow for dispersion of smoke to minimize the impact on public health. The Open Burn Status RSS feed provides daily notifications on permissive burn periods for allowable fires.
