LevittownNow.com and NewtownPANow.com, lower Bucks County’s only locally-owned, online daily news publications, reaches more than 180,000 area residents and will share Air Quality Ozone Action Day Alerts on its social media platforms.
“We’re proud to support this program that aims to make the air cleaner in Bucks County, and we hope our fellow local businesses join in,” LevittownNow.com and NewtownPANow.com Publisher Tom Sofield said.
TMA Bucks is 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.
“TMA Bucks is extremely excited to add LevittownNow.com and NewtownPANow.com as TMA Bucks Air Quality partners,” said TMA Bucks acting executive director Steve Noll. “To have them on board and notifying their dedicated readers of Air Quality Action Days helps spread the word of the importance of the issue and reach such a large audience that we couldn’t reach on our own. We value this new partnership that hopefully leads to positive changes.”
As warmer weather approaches, 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.
