American Lung Association: 2019 State of the Air Fails Fresno & California

Have you been feeling out of breath while in your own home? Whenever you go into the heart of Fresno, do you find yourself coughing, sniffling, or sneezing? It isn’t in your imagination, says the American Lung Association® (ALA).

According to the recently released “ALA: 2019 State of the Air” report, Fresno – and most of California – fails air breathability and air quality tests. Unfortunately, this is not exactly new information. The city of Fresno and the state of California have consistently ranked among some of the absolute worst in the nation for years now. In many ways, the longer Fresno is listed with poor air quality, the more difficult it becomes to get the air clean and comfortably breathable.

Fresno’s grades given by the ALA 2019 State of the Air report:

  • High ozone days: F
  • Particle pollution concentration: F

Groups identified to be at risk of health issues due to poor air quality in Fresno:

  • Elders: 118,527 people
  • Children with asthma: 17,483 people
  • Adults with asthma: 55,536 people
  • COPD patients: 30,071 people
