Air Quality improves in the U.S.

A recent release from the EPA states that Air Quality continues to improve in the U.S. with the combined emissions of six key pollutants dropping by 73% in the last 46 years:

  • “Lead (3-month average) ↓99 percent
  • Carbon monoxide (8-hour) ↓ 77 percent
  • Sulfur dioxide (1-hour) ↓ 85 percent
  • Nitrogen dioxide (annual) ↓ 56 percent
  • Ground-level ozone (8-hour) ↓ 22 percent
  • Coarse Particulate Matter (24-hour) ↓ 39 percent and Fine Particulate Matter        (24-hour) ↓ 44 percent”

This significant progress to our air quality highlights the importance of the Clean Air Act and how education is essential to maintain a healthy environment.

It’s Hurricane Season

Hurricane season is upon us, now through the end of November. Stay smart and stay safe by preparing yourself and your family for a potential disaster.

Below are some of the top hurricane preparedness tips to help you weather a storm:

  1. Create an evacuation plan
  2. Build an emergency kit:

A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:

  • Water (one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation)
  • Food (at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food)
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert
  • Flashlight
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask (to help filter contaminated air), plastic sheeting and duct tape
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener for food
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger

 

3. Ensure access to radio broadcasts for information and updates

 

4. Protect windows with storm shutters or plywood (and store all unsecured outdoor items from blowing away)

 

5. Be informed and ready (Learn your community’s hurricane response plan. Plan evacuation routes or locations of nearby shelters. Register family members with special needs or requirements and make a plan for your pets.)

 

6. The Red Cross Emergency App can help provide guidance on what to do before, during and after hurricanes (redcross.org/apps).

 

 

 

March 3 is World Wildlife Day

World Wildlife Day 2017 is focused on encouraging youth around the world to rally together to address ongoing major threats to wildlife. This includes habitat change, over-exploitation or illicit trafficking.

“Governments, law makers, enforcement officers, customs officials and park rangers across every region are scaling up their efforts to protect wildlife. It is also up to every citizen, young and old, to protect wildlife and their habitats. We all have a role to play.” 

Participating in events and getting involved are great opportunities to help raise awareness and take action in order to be part of the solution.
