Kevin Stewart of the American Lung Association, Jennifer McKenna of the Clean Air Board and local resident Mike Crochet discuss the impact of the region’s declining air quality on health and new efforts to raise awareness of this serious issue.

Excerpt: “For years now, the skies over Carlisle have not met federal clean air requirements. Now, an environmental group is leading a new effort to help residents keep an eye on what they’re breathing in.

The Clean Air Board announced a partnership with the Carlisle Regional Medical Center and the Sentinel Newspaper. They purchased an EPA-certified air monitor that measures the toxic particulate matter that comes from soot and diesel exhaust.” – WGAL News8
