What Can You Do?

--> Is there anything that people can do everyday to help reduce ground level ozone?

Procedure:

  1. Create an informational flyer (poster, web page, etc.) about ground level ozone diesel particulate matter and why it is a problem in your region of the country. The flyer may focus on any aspect of the problem, but all flyers in some way must address the following points:
    • How ground-level ozone is formed
    • Why particulate matter is a concern.
    • Health concerns associated with ground level ozone and PM.
    • Steps citizens can take to decrease amounts of ground level ozone and PM generated.
    • Steps citizens can take to protect themselves in the event of a high pollution day.
    • Explain how diesel school bus retrofitting can improve air quality and can help limit childrens exposure to poor air quality.
