Radon Gas Testing Kits Available Through the Health Department
Dec 30, 2015 3:04 PM - January has been designated National Radon Action Month by the Environmental Protection Agency. In connection with this observance, the Lake County Health Department/Community Health Center is encouraging residents to check the radon levels of their homes or apartments in January or during the winter months. "The best time to check for radon is during cold weather when windows and doors remain closed," said Tony Beltran, the Health Department's Executive Director. "Radon increases your risk of lung cancer, so it is important to check the level in your home."
