DEP Offering Webinars To Promote Safe And Energy-Efficient Homes

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) wants Pennsylvania homes to be a bit safer and more energy efficient. It is trying to get out the word through a series of webinars. The online events will be offered every quarter starting Wednesday, June 27 at 7:00 PM.

Amanda Witman, spokeswoman for the DEP, said the webinars are a part of the Department's new initiative to promote better living. The first webinar, titled "Summertime Advisories," will run a little longer than one hour. Witman said several more will follow focusing on a variety of topics.

"Different times of year we have different issues at hand. Obviously in the summertime, we're really focused on Ozone Action Days, West Nile Virus, and things of that nature," Witman said.

Future webinars will be held in August and October of 2012 and in January of 2013. Specific dates and times will be released later.

Even if you miss a session at its scheduled time you will still have access to the information. "The webinar will actually be recorded and we will put it on our website for people to view after the webinar has commenced," Witman said.
