Question

In answer to my question 2014/1798, you stated that you are developing a new air pollution forecast and alert service to ensure that schools, hospitals and the emergency services have access to this information and integrating it into your 'Breathe Better Together' campaign. Can you explain the means by which your new alert system will inform these groups and other vulnerable Londoners to harmful pollution episodes?

We will work in partnership with the existing airTEXT consortium to ensure Londoners have access to the information they need. This will be complemented with more detailed messaging and resources aimed at more specialist users (schools, hospitals, emergency services etc) delivered in partnership with London Resilience.
