The Lung Association is proud to launch a new project called the Radon Screening Program to increase awareness and encourage the public to screen their home!
They have currently partnered with two different libraries across the province. Edmonton Public Libraries (EPL) launched their Radon Screening Program on November 4, 2019 following Red Deer Public Libraries (RDPL) which launched on November 6, 2019.
What’s included in the kit?
The Radon Screening Program includes a Corentium Home electronic monitoring device with a combined coiled information and instruction booklet. You are able to loan out this device for a period of three weeks. There is a possibility to extend the loan out period depending on availability (whether or not there is a wait list). The program will be shutting down in the summer months as radon levels tend to be higher during the heating season. We want to ensure you get the most accurate result for the time period you have the electronic device. It is important to understand radon levels fluctuate continuously so a long-term test, minimum of 91 days is recommended.
You can find an electronic version of the booklet which is included in every kit below (logos may vary):
We also ask once you have borrowed the Radon Screening Program to complete the anonymous online survey. We want to continue to further educate the public about radon levels in Alberta and to continue to improve on this program! Thanks for your help in creating a world free of lung disease!
