January: Radon Action Month
Jan 25 all-day

Radon is a naturally occurring invisible, odorless radioactive gas released in rock, soil, and water that is harmless when dispersed in outdoor air, but when trapped in buildings, can be harmful at elevated levels.

The only way to know if your home has dangerous levels of radon is to test it.  Testing is easy and the winter months are the best time to test.

Any resident of the Panhandle can request a radon test from Panhandle Public Health District free of charge to help them determine the current radon levels in their homes.

Free radon test kits are available by emailing mhaas@pphd.org or calling PPHD at 308-487-3600 ext 108.
