Radon Poster Contest - Submissions Due October 31, 2014!
Kansas State University is pleased to announce it will conduct one last national radon poster contest consistent with past contests. This flyer provides the current information and schedule. The contest is now open and closes October 31, 2014.
Fact Sheet - Lung Cancer Screening for Radon Exposure History
Engineering Extension at Kansas State University has developed this fact sheet with review and input from numerous resources in the radon community. We welcome feedback to improve the information available to the public about radon risks. Work remains to be done in terms of screening recommendations and we hope that will happen soon so guidance can be updated. You are welcome to make copies and use the document appropriately. We hope this will help with meeting the needs of those serving the public to reduce radon exposure risks.
Reducing Radon In Your Home
Reliable techniques exist for reducing radon levels in homes. Experience with radon mitigation systems has developed to the point that virtually any home can be fixed, either by a trained radon contractor, or in some cases, by homeowners who accomplish the repairs themselves. One out of 15 (6%) homes nationally may have elevated indoor radon levels that should be lower. The percentage of elevated homes in your state may be much higher. The only way to know a house is elevated is to test.
National Radon Program Services
Kansas State University (K-State), as a partner in the Midwest Universities Radon Consortium, provides national radon services and projects for the US EPA. Responsibilities include the National Radon Poster Contest, National Radon Hotlines, referrals to State Radon Programs, Radon Test Kit Orders and Coupons, Radon Mitigation Promotion, and other technical assistance and outreach activities.
