The Edgewood Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) would first like to extend our condolences for the losses during the Dog Head Fire.
Edgewood SWCD staff has been working closely with the US Forest Service (USFS), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Pueblo of Isleta, and Bernalillo and Torrance Counties to ensure that the fire rehabilitation on both the USFS and private properties is being addressed.
During the New Mexico 2017 Wildland Urban Interface Summit on March 30th, the Collaborative Group reported on the Dog Head Fire.

East Mountain Residents,
We have been experiencing persistent smoke in our area due to the fires on the West Coast.
There are several websites and phone apps available for you.
The air quality index is a good place to monitor the air and how the smoke is impacting it. On your smart phone, or wherever you get your apps, search for the app called 'Weather'. It is a blue icon with the sun partially covered by a cloud. Load this app, then type in your location. In the lower left corner of the location you are in, click on the 'The Weather Channel' symbol. Now you can scroll down to where the air quality index number is located. Then, go to this site: air quality index charts. Using the number that the weather app gives you, this will allow you learn what the activity advice is for that level and what you can safely proceed with, healthwise.
Always make yourself familiar with the various sources of information concerning conditions in our area. Local news sources are reporting the wildfire activity in our area and across the Western US. Stay informed, remain vigilant, be prepared!
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
