Summer Camps Monitor Smoky Conditions

Summer camps are keeping a watchful eye on the drifting smoke and air quality alerts.

In Greenville about 300 kids are participating in a camp with Greenville Parks and Recreation. They're usually outside, but with the particles from the fire floating in the air, they are checking conditions before allowing any of the kids play outdoors.

Mike Godwin is an aquatic supervisor. He says, "Of course our patrons are our main priority, but our staff, we want to look after for as well. We train for every type of emergency, basically with the smoke it falls under the adverse weather policy so if it gets to a point where it becomes a danger to the patrons and the staff we won't hesitate to close down the facility or end an event early."
