IT’S TIME to SPEAK UP! Fleet expansion and operations increase at NASWI raises a number of questions and concerns from our communities around the Salish Sea. It takes focused and consistent efforts to reach our officials who can help us reach out to the US Navy and the Department of Defense.
This page outlines simple steps you can take to do your part.
6 Things You Can Do Right Now
1. Report jet noise from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island by clicking here.
2. Contact your local, state and federal elected officials to require real-time noise monitoring in all communities impacted by the Electronic Attack, EA-18G, training flights. Congress has the ability to impose this requirement and to make the raw data available to the public so independent analysis can be performed. This provision is being considered NOW in congressional committees. Speak out NOW!
3. Download the National Parks Conservation Association Growler Tracker App and help build a map of everywhere the Growlers can be heard throughout Olympic National Park. Another great tool for tracking Growler activity around your home, work or adventures in nature is Decibel X, available in the App Store. Post your screen shots on social media and tag Sound Defense Alliance.
6. Host a postcard writing party and/or attend a screening of Plane Truths and Hear Our Olympics. We have a supply of postcards printed with our campaign message of ‘No New Jets, No New Flights’; host a postcard writing party for your friends/community/neighborhood to write personal messages for our elected officials. Add a viewing of Plane Truths or Hear Our Olympics to help others understand the complexities involved with increased flight operations on Whidbey Island. Contact Mike@SoundDefenseAlliance.org to coordinate.
