First Steps

What you can do if small cells have already been installed in your community:


1. Purchase, rent or borrow a high-quality meter to measure the RF radiation in your home. We recommend the Acoustimeter AM-10.  


2. If radiation levels are high in a bedroom, consider moving to an area of the home away from direct line-of-sight with antennas.


3. If moving isn't an option, consider applying shielding paint to the interior of walls that face the antenna.


4. Curtains with metallic thread can reduce the transmission of radiation, as can special window film with almost invisible metallic threads.


5. Watch family members for signs of microwave sickness: headaches, dizziness, nausea, insomnia, lack of concentration, etc. 


What you can do if small cells have not yet been installed in your community:


1. Consult our list of our partner organizations. If there isn't a group in your area, consider starting one of your own. Learn how.  


2. Immediately contact your municipal officials and ask them to update their Municipal Code for small cell antennas. We have assembled a sample code, incorporating some of the most protective ideas and language from communities across the country.


3. Ask your local officials to pass the voluntary Cease and Desist Resolution, which calls on wireless companies to stop any deployment of 5G technology until independent testing proves that long-term exposure is harmless, and public health and safety can be assured.


4. Grow your organization. Follow us on social media, share our posts with friends and neighbors, host a screening of Generation Zapped at your local library, write a letter to the editor of your local paper about the issue, and let your federal representatives know how you feel.

Remember, the only thing more powerful than money is public opinion!
