What is EnviroFlash?
EnviroFlash is a system that sends e-mails
about your daily air quality forecast.
The message is the same air quality information
that the local radio or television stations provide,
plus suggested safety measures when levels are
unhealthy. This service is provided by your state
or local environmental agency and the US
Environmental Protection Agency.
Why is EnviroFlash important?

aggravate heart disease, asthma and other
respiratory diseases. By being aware of the
air quality levels, you can take precautions
to protect your family.
