Our vision is for everyone, everywhere to breathe clean, healthy air all the time, regardless of who they are or where they live. In addition to reducing air pollution overall, we also focus on equity, so nobody is more at risk because of where they live or their socioeconomic status.
Most of the air pollution in our region comes from transportation – cars, trucks, ships, planes, and trains. We promote technologies and best practices to reduce transportation emissions and protect public health and the climate.
Outdoor fires are banned in most areas in King, Snohomish, Kitsap and Pierce counties. Fines for illegal fires typically start at $2,000 plus the cost to reimburse the fire department for their response efforts.
