The Alpine Education Foundation (AEF) is wholly dedicated to the students of Alpine. While under most circumstances we focus on the educational needs of the District, the recent electromagnetic field (EMF) concerns have led us to take measures to protect not just the students and schools, but the community as well. Therefore, AEF has hired an independent EMF consultant to run a series of tests at locations on and near Alpine Boulevard and at each school site.
Furthermore, our consultant will leave a data collector for two weeks of streamed EMF reporting so we may obtain an accurate sampling at all levels of power usage. Our reports will be added to the District’s already thorough EMF reports and shared with the public. If the results indicate a problem, we will immediately work with the District to put our kids in a safe place. If the results are good, we join the rest of the community in the relief of knowing our kids are safe.
At this time, regardless of what the results are, we intend to periodically check levels well into the future – this is not an issue to take lightly nor dismiss prematurely. As many of you know, AEF is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping our schools and kids.
In our five years of existence, we have given our schools over $200,000 and our annual contributions continue to grow year after year. Our Board of Directors has authorized spending the money for testing but if you wish to help out, we would very much appreciate your donation. Thank you!
