Air pollution can make it harder for people to breathe who have asthma or other respiratory diseases like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and heart disease. Children and teens may be more sensitive than adults to the health effects caused by air pollution. http://cdc.gov/air/air_health.htm #SummerSafety

Two of the most common pollutants in the U.S. are ozone, or smog, and particle pollution. Children, teens, older adults and people with heart or lung disease are at greater risk from these pollutants. When the forecast for pollutants is high, plan activities indoors to limit exposure. https://www.airnow.gov/ #SummerSafety
