Brookfield Health Dept Has Free Testing Kits for National Radon Action Month
Radon testing kits available weekdays in the Health Department offices.
Radon can pose a serious health risk. It is a colorless, tasteless and odorous gas that has been implicated as the second leading cause of Lung Cancer in the United States.
It has been found in every state and levels can vary greatly from neighborhood to neighborhood and from home to home.
It is measured in picocuries per liter of air with an upper level of 4 pCi per liter.
The free testing will provide an accurate measurement of your home’s potential exposure. Kits may be picked up at the Brookfield Health Department weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and are accompanied by postage-free mailing envelopes, as well.
