Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Promotes Radon Awareness

Contributed by Doug Gillespie

The Nebraska Radon Program has performed the following activities to promote radon awareness. We have provided 18 local health departments with mini grants to provide radon outreach. Each health department was able to be creative on their method of outreach. Some will provide free or low-cost test kits, some will conduct radio and newspaper advertising and have a poster contest in schools. One health department will have mitigation systems installed in daycare facilities that have tested high.

The Nebraska Radon Program has contracted to have radon awareness messages aired on radio stations throughout the state for the month of January to encourage radon testing. We also take advantage of this time to provide no cost testing in public school systems.
