Name: Tri-Municipal Region Radon Awareness Presentation and 100 FREE TEST KIT Project
Date: January 21, 2019
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM MST
Event Description:
Tri-Municipal community members - Attend this public information session to learn about radon exposure, the health effects, and what you can do to reduce your exposure to radon.
The 100 Test Kit Challenge from Take Action on Radon targets municipalities across Canada where radon testing has thus far been limited, but where there is a potential for homes to have elevated radon levels.
RADON is a colourless and odourless gas that is the LEADING CAUSE of LUNG CANCER among non-smokers. Health Canada estimates that radon is responsible for approximately 16% of lung cancers in Canada. CAREX Canada risk estimates for indoor air show that radon is the highest priority exposure in Canadian settings. 
Radon testing is the only way to find out whether dangerous radon levels are present. Health Canada recommends testing homes and all public spaces. Mitigation strategies can reduce radon exposure in both new and existing structures.


THIS EVENT IS FREE.  The FIRST 100 People get a FREE TEST KIT thanks to the Take Action on Radon Project.
