Free Radon Test Kits

Moon Township has been selected this year for inclusion in the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and American Lung Association in Pennsylvania Targeted Radon Survey campaign. This campaign is to increase public awareness and radon testing in the selected areas. The municipalities in this program are selected based upon the radon test data and/or the geologic potential for radon occurrence. This targeted approach has been used for over 20 years. The Bureau of Radiation Protection of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) has awarded a grant to the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania (ALAPA) and is working with ALAPA to offer a limited number of free radon test kits (one per household, please) to residents in Moon Township.

Radon is a naturally occurring, odorless, invisible radioactive gas that the EPA estimates may cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year nationally. This is an issue that we believe needs to be taken very seriously, particularly in your area. Pennsylvania in general has some of the highest radon values in the country, and Moon Township has radon values above the average for the Commonwealth. Any building in contact with the ground can have a radon problem. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon exposure. PADEP has conducted several similar targeted radon surveys in other parts of the Commonwealth. ALAPA also has experience conducting community-based programs to increase public awareness and action concerning this very serious potential health risk.

Testing is very easy to do. If you would like a free radon test kit from the ALAPA simply go to their website at www.lungradonkits.org and submit your local Zip Code (15108) at the bottom of the screen. While supplies last, a form will appear that you should fill out and submit. A test kit from a DEP-certified laboratory will then be mailed to you within the next several weeks. All instructions and return postage are included, as is an analysis by the laboratory and reporting of results to you. We certainly hope that you would take advantage of this free offer. If you have any questions regarding the placement of the test kit or your test results, please feel free to contact Denise Bleiler or Robert Lewis at 1-800-237-2366 or 717-783-3594. For information related to lung health, please call the American Lung Association at 1-800-586-4872 or 717 541-5864.
