    • How ground-level ozone is formed
    • Why particulate matter is a concern.
    • Health concerns associated with ground level ozone and PM.
    • Steps citizens can take to decrease amounts of ground level ozone and PM generated.
    • Steps citizens can take to protect themselves in the event of a high pollution day.
