AQI Flags provided to Pinal County by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) through an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Grant
Schools participating in the Flag Program will, after receiving the daily forecast, raise the colored flag that corresponds to the daily forecast so teachers, children, parents and the community can easily know what the forecasted air quality conditions are for that day.
