Stop 5G in our neighborhoods!
Stop 5G in our neighborhoods!
”Small Cell" 5G antennas are being installed on Light poles in our neighborhood. We DO NOT WANT this 5G technology outside our home.
I write today to share that the choices you make about the environment we call home are far reaching, and that our precious homes must be protected. There’s not a lot of time, so we have to act quickly!
Here are the points of concerns:
- These small cells will be emitting microwave and millimeter waves radiation of ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity (30GHz - 300 GHz).
- These 4G and 5G so-called small cells (each with up to a 28 cubic feet of ancillary equipment) will be emitting RF-EMR exposures 24/7 in frequencies ranging from 600 MHz to 90,000 MHz. There are estimates that they will be installed every 2 -10 houses by 2020. We need to restrict these extreme density 4G and 5G small cells to only commercial and industrial areas.
- The waves penetrate 1 to millimeters of human skin tissue and are also absorbed by the surface layers of the eye's cornea.
- Over exposure can cause serious harm: infertility, childhood leukemia, arrhythmias, insomnia, cancer, DNA damage, memory/behavior problems, and more.
- We haven’t gotten a straight answer from our elected officials who allowed the FCC to include language in the 1996 Telecommunications Report that cities could not use environmental effects as reasons to to deny placement of cell towers.
- In September, 2018, the FCC created the “Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order” which streamlined rules which benefit industry while removing local control. The Order is a blatant effort by the FCC to strengthen the hand of carriers in negotiations with local governments over small cell deployment and to limit the ability of local governments to negotiate in the public interest around small cells.
- There is no scientific evidence to support any claim of 5G safety.

Doctors and Scientist warn of potential serious health effects of 5G : https://www.jrseco.com/wp-content/uploads/2017-09-13-Scientist-Appeal-5G-Moratorium.pdf (Hundreds of scientists and public health experts from around the world are demanding a moratorium on the deployment of 5G)
- There are parks and schools within a radius of the small cell that poses a major health risk to children because they are most vulnerable.
- Radiation exposure from small cell impacts environmental and wildlife. It will harm birds, bees, trees and nature. Trees will be needed to cut down. https://principia-scientific.org/5g-to-kill-the-birds-bees-and-your-loved-ones/
- Fire Hazards. Fire concerns since trees and homes are in close proximity.
- We already have adequate cell reception and another antenna is not needed.
- Installing small cell towers will take away the homeowners right to choose how much microwave radiation exposure they want to risk.
- Better delivery systems are fiber optics and cable. They are faster, reliable and safe. And it gives us homeowners the ability to choose the level of exposure.
- Decreased property values. Studies who property values drop up to 20% on homes near cell towers. (ref:https://ehtrust.org/cell-phone-towers-lower-property-values-documentation-research/)
- We are being taxed $3,500 - $5000 for each Small cell in our city per year!
- Lawsuits should arise if telecommunication companies (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint) and the city council does not warn their consumers and constituents of the health and privacy risks. They should also face legal action if they attempt to disguise 5G cell towers.
Im reaching out to you because I am a son, brother, uncle, future father, and a healthy human being.
My family and I work hard to stay healthy. I care about the well being and safety of my neighbors and their children, as well as future generations. Lets STOP this from being installed in our neighborhood! We do not consent to 5G and being exposed to electromagnetic wireless microwave radiation.
