Americans Beware: Nationwide Violations of FCC Radiation Limits at Wireless Antenna Sites
MARSHFIELD, VT--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2013) - The EMRadiation Policy Institute (EMRPI) releases Videosrevealing the FCC's failure to protect Americans from wireless radiofrequency (RF) radiation.
US workers and families are at risk of overexposure to RF at hazardous levels. Hundreds
of wireless industry-operated antenna sites from Maine to California
have been tested by EMRPI and found to be in gross violation -- up to
and in excess of 600% -- of the FCC's public exposure limits. These
sites include rooftops as well as locations where the general public,
including children, can gain access, and where workers are on the
job. See: Wireless Industry Safety Failure I
EMRPI informed FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski in December 2011 of
widespread FCC rules violations. Despite detailed complaint letters
sent to FCC Enforcement Bureau Chief P. Michele Ellison, of RF safety violations in 23 states across
all regions of the US, EMRPI has received no response that the FCC has
taken any enforcement action against any noncompliant site. EMRPI's
investigation re-tested sites and found violations still occurring
months after EMRPI's initial filings with the FCC. The FCC responded to a
US Senator's inquiry on sites in her state with misleading information
about the safety of the Senator's constituents. See: Wireless Industry Safety Failure II
Are the FCC and the Wireless Industry Turning a Blind Eye to RF Violations?
policy allows wireless companies to self-report their compliance with
the lawful RF limits. The FCC website provides no information or
procedures for either the public or workers to report potential or
actual violations. Despite hundreds of thousands of wireless antenna
sites across the US, since 1996 the FCC has issued only one wireless
Notice of Violation, and not until 2010. Is FCC policing site violations
and are violations hidden from the public?
The American Public Is Not Protected.
must act to hold the FCC accountable. If not, Americans will remain at
risk from unlawful RF radiation exposures at antenna sites across the
country. The American people have a right to know and a right to be
protected. EMRPI urges the American people to demand that the FCC
enforce its own RF safety limits to protect all Americans.
