Advanced Consulting, LLC. is dedicated to outreach and education of air quality matters in Shelby and Jefferson Counties. We work with many businesses, universities, and individuals to encourage taking alternative forms of transportation to and from work rather than a single-occupancy vehicle.
Johnson Management Group, LLC. works to educate students and parents in schools across Jefferson and Shelby Counties on how transportation choices affect their environment, health, and community. Cartoon characters, “Airon for Clean Air” and “Idle-Eddy”, are introduced to students to bring awareness and educate them on the effects of ambient air.

Students are engaged in direct dialog through classroom presentations and contests in a fun interactive environment.
