Stay prepared for hazardous air, ePay reminder, & Back To School Resources

**Important Update on Disaster Preparedness**

The Washington Department of Ecology issued a statewide air quality alert, which continues through the weekend.

Alliance plans on being open until further notice for
skincare services tomorrow (9/12) and Monday (9/13) for chiropractic.
Next week’s schedule will remain unchanged.

According to Ecology officials, air quality will continue to worsen through Saturday as smoke from Wildfires in Oregon and California thickens. Air quality is expected to slowly start getting better, from Western Washington to Eastern Washington, on Sunday.

This is not just for those at-risk for air quality issues, but healthy individuals may be at risk for respiratory issues if subjected to extended exposure. Your best bet is to keep windows and doors closed and keep your air inside your home as clean as possible.

Get prepared with a Go Bag and learn how to start crafting emergency kits.  Let your family and friends know.

The Washington Emergency Management Division recommends that you take the following actions:

▶️ Get supplies and create a box fan that filters the air around you. This video shows you how to make a box fan filter. Or, invest in a professional filtering device.
