The EMR Alliance

Mission Statement

We believe that electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is hazardous to life and consitutes a significant threat to the public's health.

We are in favor of and hope to enhance local, regional, national and international efforts to reduce, mitigate, and where possible, eliminate hazardous exposure to EMR.

We are committed to educating and informing the public about the biological effects and environmental concerns associated with EMR.

The EMR Alliance was formed to provide a forum for effective communication and organization for citizen actions groups involved in the EMR issue.

Cellular Transmission Tower Information

The EMR Alliance is offering two new publications as of December 1996.

Cell Tower Static, Consumers Cause Interference In The Race To A Wireless World
The first is a free pamphlet, "Cell Tower Static, Consumers Cause Interference In The Race To A Wireless World," which provides a great overview of this controversy. Here are three excerpts from it:

"The wireless revolution has brought with it many health and safety concerns that consumers believe have not been properly addressed or researched by either the communications industry or government and regulatory agencies."

"A September 19, 1996 press release from the Cellular Telecommunications Indutry Association, (CTIA), confirms that the wireless communications industry has set new annual records with over $20,000,000,000 in combined revenue in the last 12 months in the US alone."

"The Telecommunications Act of 1996 established the Federal Commnications Commission (FCC) as the regulatory agency to set and enforce radio-frequency safety levels. This, in spite of the fact that the FCC has acknowledged, time and time again, that it is not a public health agency."

Your Community Guide to Cellular Phone Towers
Your Community Guide to Cellular Phone Towers is a book, published in cooperation with the Communication Workers of America. This is THE resource book for any individual or community that is concerned about getting more information than what the Cellular Carrier is providing.
