Air pollution alerts

AirTEXT alerts can help reduce the effects of pollution on you or someone you look after.

Sign up to airTEXT alerts (opens in a new window)

Register for free alerts to your home phone, mobile or by email for warnings of local air pollution levels.

People with asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, heart disease and angina are more at risk from high levels of air pollution. There are simple steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of any impacts. These include taking your inhaler or angina spray with you, taking extra doses if symptoms worsen, and avoiding strenuous outdoor activity on polluted days. If you care for or are a parent of someone with these symptoms it may help you look after them better.

You can choose whether to receive your airTEXT alert on the evening before, or on the morning of a predicted high pollution day. You can also choose which part of London you wish to receive alerts.
