‘Be Air Aware’ contest continues through August

From page A3 | August 07, 2012 |

The “Be Air Aware” contest, sponsored by the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District, continues through August with air quality education efforts and a prize drawing.

The contest is aimed at increasing public awareness of air quality conditions and air pollution’s impact on health.

All district residents who sign up for free air quality alerts in August — and those who signed up in July — will be entered in a drawing for an electric, cordless lawn mower. Two mowers will be given away by Yolo-Solano district.

Current subscribers to the district’s alert system, provided through EnviroFlash, also will be entered in the drawing when they refer other residents to the service’s Be Air Aware contest page at http://www.ysaqmd.org/enviroflash-subscribe.php.

For each referral made, residents will receive an entry in the drawing, up to a maximum of five entries per household. The district covers all of Yolo County and portions of Solano County including Vacaville, Dixon and Rio Vista.

“We encourage residents to plug into air quality forecasts,” said Mat Ehrhardt, the district’s executive director. “This is a health service we provide for free to the public.”

EnviroFlash, offered through a partnership between the air district and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, sends out air quality alerts via email or text message when certain pollution levels are reached.

Residents also can subscribe to daily air quality forecasts through EnviroFlash. These subscribers receive a five-day air quality forecast for their city every day at 11 a.m.

The district will have an information booth Aug. 15 to 19 at the Yolo County Fair. Residents can sign up for forecasts and alerts there, as well.

For more information on the Be Air Aware contest, contact Tom Hall at (530) 757-3657 or [email protected] To sign up for the drawing and EnviroFlash service, visit http://www.ysaqmd.org/enviroflash-subscribe.php.

The Yolo-Solano district is a public health agency committed to protecting human health and property from the harmful effects of air pollution. For more information, visit ysaqmd.org.
