If allowed to accumulate within a building, the inhalation of the gas by the building’s occupants could result in death. Radon cannot be prevented. It can only…

  • Changing Technologies

    Technology changes rapidly, especially in the field of communication services. One new technology on the horizon is the delivery of internet by the use of airplanes. Typically, electromagnetic waves are generated from towers that hold the communication equipment. Now that equipment may be on airplanes, flying overhead. When a site is under consideration, be sure…

  • Site Mapping for Electromagnetic Forces

    Since HFC will be providing accommodations for individuals suffering negative impacts from electromagnetic forces, it is prudent to conduct a site survey as part of our canary specific due diligence. There are several commercial operations offering this service. The analysis of electromagnetic forces can be measured both below and above ground. A mapping of these forces and…

  • Tools for Discovering Your Air Quality

    Those suffering from environmental impacts need further due diligence investigations to ensure the site they have selected will not negatively impact their lives due to air or EMF factors. When beginning your search, a great place to start is the EPA (environmental protection agency) and their “EnviroAtlas” page (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas/enviroatlas-interactive-map).  Select your State then set your…
