Air quality was a top concern with large wildfires burning recently.
With blazes in Strathcona County and Lamont County, smoke covered a large portion of the heartland last week.
According to Fort Air Partnership's (FAP) air quality health index (AQHI), the majority of May 14-21 had low to moderate risk, with Bruderheim experiencing high risk air quality on May 14.
"It really does depend on the wind direction and if it's blowing it through the town or not," said Nadine Blaney, executive director of Fort Air Partnership.
During high risk times, the general population is recommended to reschedule or reduce strenuous outdoor activities.
Air quality in Elk Island, Fort Saskatchewan, Gibbons, Lamont County and Redwater remained at a low to moderate level.
In 2017, across the entire FAP network, only 57 hours were listed as high or very high risk.
