The first batch of ten kits has arrived and need to be kept refrigerated before and after use. The will need placing at least 2 metres above the ground at suitable sites for two weeks before their expiry date (15 Feb 2017). We discussed using the kits for a media campaign including photos of the kits in situ, for example outside local schools or GP surgeries. A press release could let people know that they can get their own kits from national FoE; we could also ask for suggestions where the second batch of kits should be placed around Sheffield pollution hot spots. Weather forecasts may influence when we choose to do monitoring to ensure representative results. There are also FoE leaflets and postcards and information on the “ditch diesel” campaign for distribution.
Action: Members to identify potentially suitable sites and kits will be distributed at the January meeting
