Use the 5-3-1 Visibility Method to estimate air quality

Using visibility is an easy way to gauge if it is okay to go outside or if is okay to stay outside especially in the absence of air quality monitors and when you do not have access to technology or air quality alerts, such as when you are in remote areas.

To help you make the decision, the New Mexico Department of Health Environmental Public Health Tracking Program and its locally based state and federal partners specializing in air quality and wildfire management, created the 5-3-1 Visibility Method. It incorporates mileage and landmarks to help you determine visibility. This method can also be used by event organizers, coaches, and recreational leaders to decide if practice or the game should go on or be postponed.
