EnviroFlash




EnviroFlash gives instant air quality information that citizens can customize for their own needs, allowing them to take steps that can protect the health of their family. The service is especially helpful for people who are at greater risk from air pollution, including children, older adults, and people with heart or lung diseases, such as coronary artery disease or asthma. But everyone can benefit by taking steps to reduce exposure on unhealthy air quality days.

EnviroFlash provides air quality forecasts via e-mail and pager, allowing individuals to make plans based on information that is reliable and daily. The messages include the same local air quality forecast that is coordinated through television and radio news media. EnviroFlash is sponsored by EPA and the state and local air quality agencies that participate in the AIRNow program, and can be found at www.airnow.gov.
