Mississippi Radon Program Offered Free Test Kits for National Radon Action Month

by Margaret Henderson

The Mississippi State Department of Health’s Indoor Radon Program (MSDH) offered free radon test kits during January 2018 to promote radon action month. In Mississippi less than 3% of the homes have radon levels in excess of the USEPA recommended action level of 4 pCi/L, but the Program notes that homes in northeast Mississippi are at higher risk of radon. During January, MSDH provided free kits to test any home for radon.

Some examples of news coverage promoting the free test kit initiative include:
