Second CAFE Review Gives EPA Chance to Evaluate New Technology

The U.S. EPA hopes to take a closer look at what impact additional emerging automotive technologies could have on fuel-economy and vehicle costs as it re-examines its 54.5 mpg (4.3 L/100 km) CAFE target for 2025, an official says. The agency is conducting a second midterm review of the carbon-dioxide-emissions standard, following the one completed late last year by the outgoing Obama Admin. that automakers contend was rushed through and didn’t give them an opportunity to weigh in.

Trade Officials Seek End to Border Hassles

North American trade officials say harmonizing regulations and improving infrastructure at ports of entry are just as important as trade agreements to facilitate cross-border goods movement. The auto industry has developed a shared production platform in all three countries, and stakeholders envision a day when finished vehicles and components cross international borders as seamlessly as they move across state lines.

American Red Cross Seeks Sponsors, Volunteers to Install Home Smoke Alarms in 100 Cities

This fall, the American Red Cross is planning to install 100,000 free smoke alarms in high-risk homes in 100 U.S. cities through its “Sound the Alarm. Save a Life” campaign, which runs from Sept. 23 to Oct. 15, 2017. Each year the Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters, which are mostly home fires. On average, seven people – mostly children and the elderly – die each day from a home fire and 36 people suffer injuries; and more than $7 billion in property damage occurs every year.

To achieve its goal of reducing fire-related deaths and injuries by 25% in 2020, the Red Cross is asking local businesses to get involved through sponsorships, volunteerism and raising awareness through traditional and digital/social media outreach. For a detailed plan on how to get involved in your community, send an email to Amanda Lepof, executive director of corporate programs, Red Cross, at amanda.lepof@redcross.org.
