DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) will promote National Air Quality Awareness Week starting May 4 to promote this year’s theme “Better Air, Better Health.”
The commission says that poor air quality affects everyone and that some individuals are more sensitive to it, including children and adults who are active outdoors, the elderly, and those with chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma.
MVRPC partners with the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency (RAPCA) on air quality issues. RAPCA is responsible for monitoring and reporting air quality readings in Montgomery, Greene, Miami and Clark Counties.
