Emergency Response Guidelines for Air Pollution: Safeguarding the Environment and Public Safety

Purpose :

This SOP aims to provide guidance for members of our organization in responding to emergency situations due to air pollution and to protect their health and safety as well as that of the general public.


Air pollution can threaten human health and the environment. Emergency situations due to air pollution may arise due to forest fires, explosions, natural disasters, or industrial problems. This SOP is designed to address such emergency situations with established measures.

Air Pollution Emergency Response:

1. Air Pollution Monitoring:

  • Establish an air pollution monitoring team that will keep an eye on pollution levels and air conditions when an emergency situation occurs.
  • Use proper monitoring tools to measure the concentration of air pollutants such as PM2.5, PM10, CO, NO2, and SO2.
2.Risk Assessment:

  • Evaluate the level of risk to human health and the environment.
  • Coordinate with local authorities and relevant agencies in determining air pollution hazard levels.
3. Warning and Evacuation:

  • If air pollution levels reach dangerous thresholds, alert the public immediately through appropriate media, emergency warning devices, and communication channels.
  • Prepare an emergency evacuation plan, if necessary.
4. Individual Protection:

  • Provide respiratory protective equipment (N95 masks or better) and instruct personnel and communities on its use.
  • Encourage people to stay indoors if air pollution is high.
5. Coordination with Relevant Authorities:

  • Continue to coordinate with local authorities, health departments, fire departments, and other relevant agencies.
  • Report up-to-date information and coordinate countermeasures.
6. Continuous Monitoring:

  • Continue to monitor the development of the air pollution situation.
  • Provide regular updates to personnel and the public.
7. Rescue and Healthcare:

  • Immediately treat individuals injured or sickened by air pollution.
  • Prepare additional health care facilities if needed.
8. Post-Emergency Recovery:

  • After the emergency situation subsides, conduct an impact evaluation and recovery measures.
  • Give those who are suffering from air pollution care and assistance.


This SOP is established to ensure that our organization is prepared to handle emergency situations due to air pollution and protect the health and safety of the organization's members and the general public. This SOP should be reviewed and updated regularly in accordance with environmental and policy changes.


Make sure this SOP is tailored to your organization's needs and situation. Keep them up-to-date to maintain readiness for emergency situations related to air pollution.
