January National Radon Action Month

Protect your family. Test your home for radon.

This January is National Radon Action Month (NRAM). Every January, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urges everyone across the United States to test their homes for radon gas.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that that can seep into homes from the ground. It is both colorless and odorless, so the only way to know if you have high levels in your home is to test.

Testing for radon is easy, inexpensive and can be done yourself. Test kits can be purchased online, or individuals can hire a qualified professional to conduct a radon test. Contact your state or tribal radon program for advice.
