What is Air Quality Awareness Month?
Each May the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, state and local air quality programs and local partners devote resources toward Air Quality Awareness Month public outreach activities, focusing on air quality issues.
Our Part in Air Quality
We all have an effect on the air we breathe by making choices about our daily activities; from driving our cars, to mowing our lawns, to our use of electricity.
As residents of Broward County we have the responsibility for protecting and preserving the air quality throughout the entire year, not just in May.
For example, we can all make transportation choices for clean air, and learn about ozone and what can be done to prevent its formation.
Small things like turning out your lights and keeping your car tuned properly can make a big difference in preserving and protecting the quality of our air.
These actions also help reduce the impacts of climate change.
