Connecticut Promoted National Radon Action Month with Partners

by Margaret Henderson

The Connecticut Department of Health Radon Program (CT DPH) promoted National Radon Action Month through partnerships with other entities and health organizations. See the “2018 Local Health - Radon Program Partnership” map on the link from page http://www.portal.ct.gov/DPH/Environmental-Health/Radon/Radon-Program. These promotions were in keeping with the CT DPH Radon Program’s mission to promote radon awareness, testing, mitigation, and radon-resistant new construction throughout the state in order to reduce the number of radon-induced lung cancer deaths in Connecticut. In Connecticut, approximately 30% of the 25,000 homes tested have radon levels in excess of 4 pCi/L, the USEPA recommended action level.

Several of the partners published promotional information on their websites and in the news. A listing of some of these follows:
