We envision a world free of EMF pollution where children, communities, and nature thrive!
Our mission is to educate and empower people by providing science and solutions to reduce EMFs to improve lives, achieve public policy change, and obtain environmental justice.
EMF pollution includes electric and magnetic fields, and wireless radiation and dirty electricity which is radiation on electric lines.
Many members of the EMF Safety Network have experienced harm from EMF exposure. People have been hurt by (for example) cell and cordless phones, cell towers, wi-fi, power lines, indoor wiring, and smart meters.
I started this blog in 2009, and am passionate about raising awareness of EMF harm because of my personal experience, and desire to help others. In 2006 I was struggling with chronic fatigue, recurring sore throats, hip pain and other health problems, which led to a pre-cancerous condition. My doctor told me I needed to improve my immune system but couldn’t tell me how. I tried a lot of things: acupuncture, herbs, chiropractic, cranial sacral, which felt good but did not make a lasting difference. Then we hired EMF electrician, Michael Neuert who measured our house and found we had high electric and magnetic fields from indoor wiring, florescent lights, dimmers and appliances. He recommended that we figure out the least electricity we needed and turn the rest off at the breaker box. The sleeping area was most important place to have the electricity off. When we did this I immediately felt better. Within a week I experienced a huge increase in energy and within a month many of my health problems disappeared. I was shocked to learn of the power of electricity to harm. I researched about EMF’s for an entire year before speaking out as an activist.
In 2007 the City of Sebastopol approved free city wide wi-fi. A small group came together (Why Wi-fi campaign) to protest and educate the city council and they eventually rescinded the contract to install the wi-fi.
In 2009, in response to the forced installation of utility smart meters, our group changed our name to EMF Safety Network (EMFSN) and this blog was launched. We started the campaign against Smart Meters in Northern California, which has become a global effort to stop smart meters and restore analog meters. On this website you will find compilations of customer complaints on health, fires, and other smart meter problems and suggestions on what you can do to help stop the forced installations. Our legal efforts at the California Public Utilities Commission helped win the right to retain analog meters for millions of Californians.
Go to Safety Tips to learn how to reduce EMF’s and protect yourself, and your family. We recommend the use of corded phones and wired computers. If you struggle with chronic health problems, learning to reduce EMF’s may restore your health and vitality. People around the world are finding out they are electrically sensitive.
Governments, health agencies, scientists and advocacy groups worldwide advise precaution. Read the BioInitiative Report, see abstracts, and hear from doctors. The EMF and RF World Concerns Summary is a compilation of links to illustrate the weight of world recognition of the growing problem of electrical pollution.
Need help educating a school board, local or state government about wireless radiation impacts from cell towers or wi-fi? See Advocacy Support.

“I have no doubt in my mind that at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields. I consider that to be far greater on a global scale than warming, and the increase in chemical elements in the environment.’’ – Dr. Robert O. Becker Author of Cross Currents and The Body Electric
We’ve arranged a society on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power sooner or later is going to blow up in our faces. I mean, who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it.- Carl Sagan
