GURUGRAM: As air quality has degraded in Gurugram to very poor level, Blueair in collaboration with Artemis Hospital distributed 2000 N95 pollution masks to the Gurugram police. Two thousand anti-pollution masks was handed over to police at Police Line, Gurugram on 21st October.
Air quality in Gurugram is already deemed to be highly polluted, which after burning of crop residue and change in weather condition becomes more toxic and unbreathable and is taking major toll on its people, especially those who have to spend more of their time outside serving duty or other business.
Arvind Chabra, Head, Blueair India said, “Police team is amongst those highly vulnerable groups who, in line of their duty, spends hours breathing highly toxic air,Which makes them prone to respiratory and other lungs related ailments. These anti-pollution masks will minimize the major impact of toxic air on their health during the duty hours. This initiative will help ensure safety of police personnel from the ill-effects of polluted air.”
Dr. Himanshu Garg, city based Respiratory expert said, “As policemen on ground are responsible not only for regulating things like traffic but responsible for enforcing all other regulations they are the ones who are most exposed & thus vulnerable to the affects of pollution. As a small gesture N95 pollution masks will help them breathe clean during the time when pollution level is very poor.”
Police Commissioner of Gurugram, K K Rao said, “As Gurugram police personnel deal with strained environmental condition while serving their duty. These masks from Blueair will help minimize the impact of alarming air pollution on them during high pollution.”
