environmental protection agency and state and local governments
work constantly to make the air cleaner across the country through
air quality standards and rules to reduce pollution from power
plants, industries, cars, diesel trucks, buses and construction
equipment. But you have a role to play too. There are ways all of
US can reduce the amount we each contribute to air pollution in
our community and communities downwind. Saving energy reduces
pollution and it can save Money. Use the following guidelines to
help keep air cleaner in your community. You can help reduce
pollution in your community by following these guidelines. These
recommendations are especially important when ozone is expected to
be unhealthy.

* Choose a cleaner commute; share a ride to work or use public
transportation. Combine errands and reduce trips.

* Delay using gasoline powered lawn and garden equipment until
later in the day or until days when the air quality is better.
