National Radon Action Week encourages homeowners and families across the United States to better understand that radon is a real threat that can occur anywhere. It is important to test homes for radon and take steps to mitigate any radon issues that emerge.
Join members of the radon community to raise awareness about the health effects of radon exposure. By planning outreach activities to promote radon testing, mitigation and radon-resistant new construction, you are adding to the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign to increase the number of lives saved from radon-induced lung cancer.
