Sacramento, CA – With the collaboration of local air districts, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has launched an interactive statewide map that provides crucial information on Clean Air Centers. Funded by AB 836 (2019), these Clean Air Centers are designed to offer refuge to vulnerable communities during times of poor air quality by providing upgraded ventilation systems and portable clean air cleaners.

The California Clean Air Center Map serves as a one-stop-shop website where users can easily access essential details such as operating hours, contact information, and available amenities like free Wi-Fi at each center. It is important to note that not all Clean Air Centers will appear on the map simultaneously, as many are activated only during wildfire smoke events or other air quality emergencies. CARB, local air districts, and CAPCOA are committed to updating the map promptly with information on new or additional Clean Air Centers as it becomes available.

Looking ahead, CARB is enhancing its mobile app, California Smoke Spotter, to incorporate Clean Air Center locations. With its current features on showing smoke and fire information near your location, the addition of including Clean Air Centers will be enhancing the public’s access to necessary resources. This update is expected to roll out in the coming weeks.
