Cell Tower Issue
***** Project Summary Update (Jan 2012) *****
The leadership of Medford UMC has embarked upon a journey to partner with T-Mobile to install a cellular tower base in the church's steeple. During the course of the research and planning stages of the project, a level of concern grew in the local community and among some of those who participate in church-supported activities. We take this concern for health very seriously. As such, we have enlisted the assistance of independent industry experts in the field of RF radiation to perform an in-depth analysis of our case in order to make the most informed decisions.
If you have taken the time to visit this page, you may have the same concerns as others. We urge you to take the time to become educated on the matter. Resist the generalistic and inflammatory claims of activists until you can make your own assessment of the facts presented. Our goal is to be as open as possible throughout this process.
The menu on the left contains links to some of the documention from our research. Included throughout are references to other independent expert investigations and techical data. We recommend you start with the link titled "Issue Synopsis." It is the capstone document that introduces you to the remaining support documents. Our Useful Links page may also be of use to you in your study.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the issue.
