This handbook is designed to provide you with instruction and guidance on how to inform your community about the risks posed by overexposure to UV radiation and the steps that residents can take to reduce these risks. You will also learn more about the UV Index and how it can be incorporated into a successful sun protection education program. This handbook was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking (EMPACT) program. EPA created EMPACT in 1996 to take advantage of new technologies that make it possible to provide environmental information to the public in near-real time. EPA partnered with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to help achieve nationwide consistency in measuring environmental data, managing the information, and delivering it to the public.
