We’re pretty lucky in Indianapolis. Most of the time our air is nice and clean. But it’s not perfect. Occasionally, pollutants here exceed federal air quality standards. When that happens, the air can be unhealthy, especially for children, senior citizens, people with breathing related illnesses like asthma, and those who are active outdoors.
