Summit County Environmental Health Director, Phil Bondurant, and Habitat for Humanity Summit and Wasatch Counties Director, Shellie Barrus, join the healthcast today to talk about Burn Smart.
Burn Smart Summit County is a local collaboration between the Summit County Health Department, Habitat for Humanity Summit and Wasatch Counties, Utah Physicians for Healthy Environment and Purple Air to improve air quality in Summit County, Utah. Initial funding is provided by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. Burn Smart Summit County will work to reduce exposure to wood smoke pollution by helping low and moderate-income residents obtain sources of heat cleaner and healthier than wood-burning stoves. In addition, the grant will help fund an education and awareness campaign for underserved populations to address the health effects of wood smoke.
