Welcome to the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission's (MORPC) EnviroFlash subscription page for the central Ohio region. Here you can sign up to receive free air pollution forecasts delivered straight to your inbox. MORPC issues Air Quality Alerts when ground-level ozone and/or particle pollution levels are expected to be Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups of people, which includes people with respiratory and heart illness, older adults, young children and people who are active outdoors. You will be notified approximately one day in advance of a next-day Air Quality Alert. With EnviroFlash you can decide if you would like to receive an email when pollution levels are likely to be high, or if you would like to receive daily air quality forecast emails. You can change your preferences at any time.
Now you can be aware of the air you're breathing to plan your days accordingly to reduce exposure to poor air quality and take action to reduce pollution. Check out our air quality page at http://airquality.morpc.org for more information. If you have any questions, please call (614) 233-4168 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
MORPC and other agencies across the country use the National Air Quality Index to notify the public (by issuing Air Quality Alerts) at the Orange Level to protect sensitive groups from the health effects of ozone and particle pollution.
