Citizens for Safe Fairfax County Schools
CELL TOWERS DO NOT BELONG ON SCHOOL PROPERTY
- Cell Towers on Fairfax Public County school properties (buildings, playgrounds and athletics fields) brings unnecessary safety and security risks to Fairfax Public County children/students.
- Fairfax County Public School needs to focus all efforts on education and providing a safe environment for it's students. FCPS should not be involved in a "side business" that drives revenue for third-party vendors and puts Fairfax County children at risk.
- The Fairfax County Public School Board needs to update their ten year old cell tower policy (#8335) to prioritize the safety and security of FCPS students.
Please help us stop a 150' tall cell tower that is going to be placed 400 feet from the Crossfield Elementary School playground!
Why you should be concerned
Parents and neighbors have numerous concerns about the placement of the tower, including health, physical safety, and property value.
Physical safety of your kids
Is a piece of industrial equipment near the lower Crossfield playground safe for our kids? Learn about how towers have collapsed and caught fire.
Know the health risks
There is no definitive science proving the radiation emitted from these towers is safe. We're not willing to risk our children's health when more and more studies link cellular radiation to health issues.
Crossfield parents recently spoke out against the installation of a tower directly on the school grounds. The local media were vital in helping get the word out about parent concerns over the previous cell tower application.
