URGENT!: Today July 8th Delcared an Air Action Day

Tuesday, July 8, 2014  An Air Quality Action Day is forecast in our
region for today (Tuesday, July 8, 2014).

URGENT!

Here are several simple steps to take TODAY to prevent pollution:

  • Combine errands into a single trip.
  • Postpone unnecessary trips.
  • Take the subway, bus or train instead of driving.
  • Avoid letting your vehicle idle, such as at the drive-thru.
  • Forward this message to family and friends.
  • Avoid operating gas-powered gardening equipment such as lawn mowers on Air Quality Action Days. Wait for a day when air quality is better.
The New York State Department of Transportation has declared that today, Tuesday, July 8, 2014, is an Air Quality Action Day in the downstate metro area due to forecasted high levels of ground-level ozone pollution in parts of the region (please visit the Clean Air NY Web site for more information http://cleanairny.org/DoYourPart.html). While today is still a day when people can go about most of their normal activities, such as going to work, driving may be one of the most polluting activities that people do today, and we encourage everyone to leave their cars at home if possible.

Ground-level ozone is a respiratory irritant that can trigger asthma attacks and aggravate emphysema, bronchitis and other respiratory ailments. Children, people with pre-existing respiratory or heart conditions, people doing strenuous outdoor work or exercise and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to the effects of ozone.

Clean Air NY is sponsored by the New York State Department of Transportation in support of regionwide air-quality efforts.

TMFD Participates in STEM-tastic Fair

Tuesday, May 13, 2014   On Saturday May 3rd the TMFD participated in the First STEM-tastic Festival at the Hommocks Middle School.  The event was hosted by the STEM Alliance of Larchmont-Mamaroneck and was a grassroots half day festival of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).   Each of Mamaroneck’s six schools -- including students and staff members -- were involved in one way or another with this hands-on community-wide collaboration featuring local STEM experts, workshops, professional attractions, a community exhibit hall, STEM vendors, and Cool Career Roundtables lead by experts from various disciplines.

The TMFD demonstrated many different ways in which math, engineering and science are used in fire fighting and rescue operations.  Everything from mechanical advantage when lifting a victim using pulleys to the mathematical formulas used to pump water at precise pressures were demonstrated in a hands on approach for the participants.

You can learn more about STEM by visiting their website: http://www.lmstemalliance.org/index.html
