Radon: A Silent Threat - Free Webinar 2/4/2021 7:00PM

7:00 PM Thursday, February 4, 2021 Zoom Meeting (link emailed after registering)

Do you know what radon is?  Did you know that radon is the number one cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and that 71.6% of homes tested in Iowa have high levels of radon?  The good news is that you can easily test your home’s radon levels and mitigation can be simple and relatively inexpensive.

Please join Buchanan County ISU Extension, Buchanan County Environmental Health, and Midwest Systems for this free webinar open to the public.  This webinar will help you to understand what radon is, how it enters your home, the risk it poses to your health, how to test for it, and mitigation strategies to reduce high levels.  You can submit your questions prior to the webinar when registering or during the presentation.

All Buchanan County residents will receive a coupon for a free short-term radon test kit (one per family).  Additional radon test kits may be purchased at the Buchanan County Environmental Health office.
