Text version of the Ventilation Index
Before conducting an open burn:
The Ventilation Index ranges from 0 to 100, as summarized in this table:
|Ventilation Index||Ventilation Category|
|0 - 33||POOR|
|34 - 54||FAIR|
|55 - 100||GOOD|
The ventilation index is also available on the Venting Index Forecast and Smoke Sensitivity Zone Interactive Map. It is the combination of ventilation forecast and smoke sensitivity zone at your location that determines if you can burn and for how long.
An automated telephone service that provides information about the ventilation index can be reached by dialing 1-888-281-2992 (toll-free).
