Smokey day at Albany Tech

May 23, 2007

Albany - Smoke from those wildfires created breathing problems even indoors in Albany today. At Albany Tech, workers who arrived early this morning had difficulty breathing and their eyes were irritated from smoke that got in the buildings.

The fresh air dampers in all buildings were closed to stop some of the smoke from getting in. "It's just amazing that a wildfire more than 100 miles away is making us make these modifications to keep our employees and our students safe right here in Albany," said Kathryn McPhail.

The fresh air dampers will remain closed as long as necessary to keep smoke from getting inside the buildings.
