Regarding the burns of June 28, 2011

Date: June 29, 2011
From: Emergency Action Committee of Skin Cells
To: CNS attn: Committee of Planning
CC: Council of Skin Unions, Soft Tissue Alliance
Subject: Regarding the burns of June 28, 2011

Dear Committee of Planning:
We the Skin Cell Unions of 2301, 2302, 2303R, 2303L, 2328L, and 2328R, forming the current Emergency Action Committee (EACoSC231) wish to address an event on June 28, 2011. On this date all of the unions of the EAC0SC, as well as Union 2325, experienced approximately five(5) hours of full solar light. This solar light included high amounts of UVA and UVB energy. This UVA and UVB light caused damage to most of the areas of control of the members of the EACoSC231.

We understand from multiple sources that this incident was a result of accepting to take a coworker’s shift, which lasted from 11:30 to 16:30. The acceptance with this shift addition was performed without consideration of inadequate supply of any sun protection. We do understand that from 14:00 to 16:30 was due to miscommunication and could not be prevented, however from about 10:00 to 14:00 is the peak strength of the UVA and UVB light. We wish that this was considered.

We have two requests to make. First we wish to make to the Committee of Planning that the Committee of Planning please review the requests of EACoSC211, EACoSC222, EACoSC223, as well as our request that from now on a bottle of sunscreen be kept in any and all modes of transportation for emergency usage such as what occurred on June 28.
Second, we ask that all new acceptances of shifts first be passed by and approved by the Council of Skin Unions and/or the Soft Tissue Alliance. We realize this will cause a delay in responses, so when the shift is less than two hours long and current burn amount is less than five percent (5%), we are fine with being bypassed in the decision making process.

According to our sources, the next outdoor shift is July 3, 2011 from 11:30 to 14:00. We wish to hear a response by then, and during that shift be excessively coated in a sun protector.

Thank you for hearing our requests.
