Radon Radio at the NCSL Conference in Philadelphia, PA

The National Safety Council, AARST, and EPA sponsored a booth at the National Conference of State Legislatures Legislative Summit in Philadelphia, PA July 20-24. As in past years legislators were asked to record short radio public service announcements to educate their constituents about radon; this year’s efforts beat all previous records with more than 150 legislators recording PSAs. Recordings will be sent to the legislators and their local radio stations to air during January, National Radon Action Month.

As a builder, homeowner, and parent, I know that having a healthy and green home is extremely important in protecting the health of my family.
