- The Environmental Protection Agency’s ultraviolet (UV) index forecasts can help users prepare for, and avoid excess, UV exposure.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Sun Safety for America’s Youth Toolkit has sun-safe policies for community programs.
- Use Airnow.gov to track local air quality and prepare accordingly for outdoor activities for youth with asthma.
