EMF Concerns

Some people have had concerns about the health effects of having WiFi signals downtown. This page is an attempt to address those concerns. We will follow the strict federal guidelines outlined by the FCC.

Our Position

Our investigation has concluded that the general scientific community has found no threat or adverse health effects from the project we are proposing. EMF radiation is all around us. It includes: visible light, cell phones, televisions, FM/AM radio, PG&E Sensors, satellite dishes, and much more. We will guarantee that our project does not exceed intensities that are not already allowed by the FCC.

The World Health Organization

Here is a brief summary of what the WHO has concluded as far as health concerns of non-ionizing radiation (this includes radiation from wireless routers).

"In the area of biological effects and medical applications of non-ionizing radiation approximately 25,000 articles have been published over the past 30 years. Despite the feeling of some people that more research needs to be done, scientific knowledge in this area is now more extensive than for most chemicals. Based on a recent in-depth review of the scientific literature, the WHO concluded that current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields. However, some gaps in knowledge about biological effects exist and need further research."

Soon, we will provide a list of devices being used for the WiFi project.
