Free radon test kits in January, National Radon Action Month

Post Independent
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Garfield County Environmental Health staff encourages residents to pick up a free radon test kit during January, which is National Radon Action Month. Radon is a radioactive gas responsible for hundreds of lung cancer deaths in Colorado each year. It enters homes through the ground, contaminating the air inside.

The kits determine if radon gas exists inside homes. Contact local Environmental Health departments in Garfield, Eagle and Pitkin counties, or the City of Aspen or town of Vail to pick up a free radon test kit. The Clean Energy Economy for the Region (CLEER) office in Carbondale also offers free radon test kits.

Visit the Garfield County website for general radon information, information on test kits, a radon information class Jan. 19 offered by the city of Aspen, a radon guide producing by federal agencies, and information from the state of Colorado at Or call Garfield County Public Health at 970-625-5200, ext 8106, for more information.
