A manual to assist local air pollution officials with the design and implementation of Emergency Action Plans for the avoidance of air pollution episodes is presented. The manual is directed toward the needs of relatively small cities. Section 2 presents the following information as an aid in understanding and defining the factors that constitute an air pollution episode: the nature and effects of atmospheric pollutants; and meteorological factors related to air pollution episodes. Section 3 discusses the formulation and operation of a typical Emergency Action Plan. Section 4 presents a list of items to be considered when formulating an Emergency Action Plan. (OAP abstract)
