Go All Out for Clean Air Action Day
Jun 04, 2016 12:46PM
Clean Air Action Day 2016 will be celebrated on June 24. The purpose is to intentionally and collectively take specific actions to improve air quality by each person within their own sphere of influence. Be aware this ozone season to protect health and take action to reduce air pollution. The north Texas region has been designated clean air non-attainment status for several years and our hot summers amplify this condition. North Texans, businesses and local governments can improve air quality by joining together to implement focused strategies that reduce ozone causing and other pollution and protect our health and the environment, especially on Ozone Action Days.
Air North Texas, a program, of the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is challenging everyone to refocus efforts and commit to specific actions to improve the air quality and health of our environment. Air quality impacts everyone, and it’s up to each of us to take responsibility for the air we breathe and to take steps to continue to improve it.
