We are challenging municipalities across Canada to take part in the 100 Radon Test Kit Challenge.
Sign up today to join this challenge for 2020-2021 fall and winter.
Take Action on Radon is working with 15 communities across Canada providing 100 free radon test kits and helping them with increasing radon awareness. We are also working on lining up communities for the fall of 2020. If you have sent in your submission and haven’t heard from us, you can contact us. If you are interested in participating, we still have room for a few more communities but our list is filling up so don’t delay!
The 100 Radon Test Kit Challenge targets municipalities across Canada where radon testing has thus far been limited, but where there is a potential for homes to have elevated radon levels. The program will provide 100 test kits to each participating municipality, to be distributed to citizens for free or for a nominal fee. Each community needs to have a Community Liaisons to take on this project in their community and provide local support.
Do you think your community would be a great candidate for this project? Contact your municipality and recommend that they sign up.
- this is an individual(s) who is with the municipality or health region
- the individual(s) would be committed to developing a Recruitment Plan to share information with their community members to help recruit 100 participants for the project (resources for a recruitment plan can be found below)
- the individual(s) would develop an idea for distribution and collection strategy for the radon test kits (see ideas below) including a method and timeline, and also help their community members with the online sign-up
- work with the Take Action on Radon team to keep us in touch with success and challenges so we can provide some assistance
- report back to us with lessons learned; we would love to be able to use your success and challenges to help other communities
