We are always looking for businesses and organizations in Bucks County that want to become Air Quality partners to share with employees or residents tips to reduce air pollution and protect their health from air pollution.
The Bucks County Department of Health will put air quality action alerts on its social media and will also promote the alerts to families of children with asthma or other lung diseases.
As warmer weather approaches during the spring, so does the onset of ground-level ozone. High levels of ozone pose health risks for everyone, and large segments of the population are considered especially sensitive to air pollution. Fortunately, ozone levels are being monitored and the public can be alerted when levels become unhealthy.
The Air Quality Partnership (AQP), a program of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, educates residents about the dangerous effects of ground-level ozone and provides air quality forecasts to the public.
