How To Adopt a Cell Phone Wireless Safety Proclamation in Your City

How To Adopt a Cell Phone Wireless Safety Proclamation in Your City

People are raising the issue of cellphone and wireless device safety across the World.  You can, too!  It is an excellent way to raise awareness on this issue and does not involve changing laws. Please bring this issue to the attention of your local city or town leaders and welcome them to adopt a Proclamation of Cell Phone/Wireless Safety or declare a Cell Phone Awareness Month.
Here are some examples of such efforts in the United States:
  • Jackson Hole, Wyoming made a Proclamation of Cell Phone Safety  which cites concern over long term health effects as well as the increased risk the radiation poses to children.
  • Pembroke Pines, Florida passed Resolution 3362  which expressed the City’s “Urgent Concerns” about Wireless Radiation and Health, encourages citizens to read their manuals and presents information on how to reduce exposure by using a headset or speakerphone.
  • Burlingame California City Council voted to include cell phone safety guidelines in  their  Healthy Living in Burlingame initiative which include the WHO classification and precautions a consumer can take if concerned.
  • 2010, Portland Maine: Mayor Mavodenes, Jr. declared October  “Cell Phone Awareness Month”
  • San Francisco has a Cell Phone Information: page with information on how to reduce exposures.
In order for the Council to understand this issue it is important to send letters,  prepare materials and speak at your to the City Council meetings. We have several resources that will be helpful to your efforts.
