 When?

 How?

 Initial Notification Level

 Delivery

  For separate  delivery, you may receive multiple notifications throughout the hour if more than one of your locations reaches your chosen alert level.

  For group  delivery, you will receive just ONE hourly notification, approximately 30 minutes past the hour with current alerts for any of your locations that reached your chosen alert level.

Notification Disclaimer

You may not always receive an alert for your saved location, due to:

  • A location has not reached the alert level you selected
  • Data is unavailable due to a technical issue
  • Data is delayed and doesn't make the 30 minute deadline (group delivery only)

RAAN data relies on a network of monitors managed by the Valley Air District as well as monitors managed by the California Air Resources Board for which Valley Air has no control.
