A new report by Take Action on Radon (TAOR) reveals that the overwhelming majority of communities that have taken part in their 100 Radon Test Kit Challenge program are finding that dangerous levels of radon are much more common that Health Canada’s national estimate or 7% of Canadian homes have elevated radon levels – would suggest.
The 100 Radon Test Kit Challenge program takes a Citizen Science approach to gathering data on radon levels. A turn-key program, it was designed to engage and support communities in distributing radon test kits to their residents while gathering data and spreading radon awareness. Participating communities receive a toolkit of resources, and the support of the Take Action on Radon team through each step of the program.
