We're interested in approaches that could apply in situations where affected residents might not have continuous access to cell phones or wifi.

This is a complementary question to conversations about how to use text notifications to communicate air quality data (example here).

Thank you for any ideas or examples!


For real-time alerts, one option is an air quality flag program. This one from the US EPA uses colored flags that correspond with its Air Quality Index (AQI) colors: https://www.airnow.gov/air-quality-flag-program/
