Protect Our Children! No Cell Tower near Westview Elementary School!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Verizon is making plans to erect a new cell phone tower at 145 Powell Rd., Limestone, TN 37681. This proposed location is approximately 400 yards from Westview Elementary School, a K-8 school. We, parents, grandparents, and members of the community are concerned about the health effects this tower may have on our children. In addition, this proposed tower will be within 100 yards from a pond heavily frequented by many species of migratory birds.
Why?Cellphones and towers emit non-ionizing RF radiation which the World Health Organization has listed as a possible carcinogen. A recent federal study found this type of radiation causes cancer in animals. These same rare cancers, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, have been found in epidemiological studies of exposed humans. This is just one of many reasons to stop this tower from being placed near our school. For more information you can visit http://www.parentsforsafetechnology.org/cell-tower-radiation-research.html and https://www.hempfieldsdcelltowers.com
We need to stop this tower from being built in this location in order to preserve the health of our children and the citizens of the community. As well as protecting our local ecosystem and numerous migratory birds that rely on this pond annually. These children are the future and we need to keep them safe. Please help us protect our children. It should be your choice as Americans as to what you subject your family to when it come to health risks. One could argue that in our modern world we are subjected to a lot of potentially harmful stuff . But as parents and Americans we should be able to make choices that minimize our own and our children's exposure ultimately minimizing their potential health hazards. If this tower is erected the parents and children of Westview Elementary School and the surrounding community with have few choices left.
We ask the Planning Commission to not allow any new cell towers from Being Built 1000 yards from any school in Washington County Tennessee.
We ask Verizon to find a better suited site for their tower in a less populated area at least 1000 yards from any school in Washington County Tennessee.
