As a homeowner who has learned about radon, tested your home and you want to help others, there are things you can do to take action on radon and help your community:
Share information with neighbours.
- Help us spread the word about radon testing and let you neighbours know that testing is easy. You can direct them to a list of providers here
Share your story.
- Testing for radon is still a bit of an unknown concept, but sharing testimonials is a great way to help encourage others to test. Upload your story on why you think others should test here.
