June 27-28, 2019 Declared Air Quality Action Days by Clean Air NY

The New York State Department of Transportation has declared June 27 and 28 Air Quality Action Days in the downstate metro area. This means high amounts of ground-level ozone are forecasted. Ground-level ozone can trigger chest pain, impact lung tissue and can be particularly unsafe to people with heart and lung problems as well as older adults and children.

What you can do to help:

  • Tell colleagues about the Air Quality Action Day and encourage them to sign up for email updates.
  • Encourage peers to visit CleanAirNY.org to learn more about air pollution and what they can do to help clean the air.
  • Driving is one of the most polluting daily activities that people do. Urge your colleagues to take public transit, bike, walk, carpool or telework, if possible.

Thanks for taking these important steps to reduce air pollution and its harmful effects.
