January is
Radon Awareness Month 

What is Radon?

Radon is an invisible, odorless, radioactive gas that is naturally released from rocks, soil, and water. 

Radon can get into homes or buildings through small cracks or holes and build up to higher levels.
Over time, breathing in high radon levels can cause lung cancer.


Radon Testing
There is no known safe level of radon.
You should always aim to have the lowest level.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends fixing your home
if radon levels are above 4 picoCuries per liter of air.
The only way to know if you have unsafe levels of
radon in your home or office is by testing.

Chatham Health District has a
limited number of home radon test kits available for residents of district towns.
