North Texans taking action for clean air June 24

 

With ozone season here, North Texans are joining together to celebrate Clean Air Action Day on Friday, June 24. Area residents and employees of local governments and businesses will take at least one action to show they can make a difference to improve air quality.

 

Taking action for clean air is as simple as choosing to walk to a restaurant or eat in the office for lunch. Bicycling, walking, riding mass transit, carpooling, combining trips, avoiding idling, driving the speed limit and using a clean vehicle are other ways transportation choices can help improve air quality. Vehicle safety inspections and regular maintenance also help control emissions.

 

During the day, NCTCOG will hold a social media contest with Arlo the Airmadillo to encourage people to share their clean air actions and spread the word about air quality. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram users can participate by using the hashtag #CAAD2016. Details, including prizes, will be made available on NCTCOG’s social media pages in the coming weeks.

 

All North Texans are encouraged to log their clean air commitments at AirNorthTexas.org. Clean Air Action Day coincides with the monthly Surface Transportation Technical Committee meeting held at NCTCOG’s offices in Arlington. STTC members will join in the day’s events with a luncheon featuring presentations about air quality and the environment. A livestream of the luncheon will be hosted at NCTCOG.org/video (under the “Live” tab).

 

Air North Texas members Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and the city of Dallas have also planned events to celebrate Clean Air Action Day. For more information about how to improve air quality throughout the year, visit AirNorthTexas.org.
