Radon Testing Kits Available

Radon is an invisible and odorless gas that can enter homes through cracks in the basement floor or from well water.

· Prolonged exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.

·         Only one in five homes has a radon problem. But the only way to know if your home is free of radon is to test it.
The American Lung Association of New England is offering a Radon Test Kit and Information Packet for $12.00. This includes postage and handling.
To order a kit, or for additional information, please call 1-800-LUNG USA or 1-860-289-5401.


Additional information on radon may be obtained from the national website of the American Lung Association at www.lungusa.org. Then choose "AIR QUALITY" from the menu. Or you may access the United States Environmental Protection Agency's radon information directly at www.epa.gov/iaq/radon/index.html.
