Cinnaminson, NJ, May 4th
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in conjunction with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Weather Service (NWS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Forest Service, and U.S. Department of State, have announced that May 3rd
through the 7th
is Air Quality Awareness Week (AQAW).
The goal of AQAW is to promote events that increase air quality awareness and encourage people to check the Air Quality Index (AQI), daily. This year’s theme is, “Healthy Air – Important for Everyone!” The agencies that are sponsoring the event will focus on the following daily topics this week:
- Monday - Wildfires & Smoke
- Tuesday - Asthma & Your Health
- Wednesday – Citizen Science & Sensors
- Thursday – Environmental Justice Communities & Air Quality
- Friday – Air Quality Around the World
“Air Quality Awareness Week is an opportunity for people to recognize that the air inhaled outdoors and indoors can have a dramatic impact on their overall health and quality of life,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President, Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Since most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, the air quality in homes, schools, and businesses needs to be free of elevated levels of particulate matter, chemicals, and biological pollutants that could act as an irritant or cause allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions, and diseases. The industrial hygiene and environmental laboratories of EMSL Analytical have been offering indoor and outdoor air quality testing services, sampling supplies, easy-to-use test kits, and monitoring instruments for the past 40 years.”
