Arizona officials issue first pollution advisory of year

PHOENIX — Arizona has issued an ozone pollution advisory as temperatures
are expected to surpass 110 degrees and create high-pollution conditions.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality issued the warning for Friday
and urged commuters to carpool to help reduce emissions.

Health officials said children and adults with respiratory problems should avoid
outdoor activities.

They added Arizonans should drive as little as possible, delay painting projects
and make sure containers of household cleaners and other solvents are properly
sealed to prevent vapors from entering the air.
