The Central California Asthma Collaborative works across the entire San Joaquin Valley to reduce the burden of asthma and related conditions through education, intervention, policy analysis and advocacy by improving care and reducing air pollution.
The San Joaquin Valley has some of the worst air in the nation. We're working to help everyone breathe easy.
We're using our skills and resources as a community hackerspace to build new technology that will paint a clearer picture of how our air is doing. The data we collect can be analyzed and used to help drive policy decisions that will benefit all of us.
SJVAir is a network of low-cost air quality monitors providing real-time PM2.5 data to disadvantaged communities across the San Joaquin Valley. SJVAir is operated by a collaborative of non-profit organizations from Bakersfield to Stockton.
Root Access is developing the technology, both hardware and software, to make this happen:
Root Access provides the space for testing and calibration of CCAC's Purple Air monitors before they're put into the field for data collection.
Configuring a batch of Purple Air monitors before they're tested and calibrated.
Building the air monitor rack on our roof and setting up monitors.
We can test and calibrate up to thirty-six Purple Air monitors at a time.
