Want to test your house for radon, the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer, for free?
The Lung Association, Alberta and NWT in partnership with the Canadian Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists, Terwillegar Towne Home Owners Association, Oak Hills Community League, and the Terwillegar Community League are hosting a Radon Information Session at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 30th at the Terwillegar Community Church (1751 Towne Centre Boulevard).
In addition to a short presentation starting at 7:30 p.m., representatives will be onsite giving away FREE radon test kits (retail value of $40-$70) and information on radon. The session will end at 9:00 p.m. and you must be present to receive your free kit.
What is radon? Radon is a radioactive, invisible, odorless gas that can seep into your home through cracks in floors, walls and foundations. You can't see radon. You can't smell it or taste it. In enclosed spaces, such as your home, it can accumulate to dangerous levels.
Exposure to high levels of radon in indoor air results in increased risk of developing lung cancer. DID YOU KNOW - Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, and Health Canada estimates that about 16% of lung cancer deaths are related to being exposed to radon in the home. It is estimated that there are more than 3,000 lung cancer deaths in Canada related to radon each year.
The only way to ensure your home does not have dangerous levels of radon is to test for it. Please come find out more information about radon, its impact on your health, how easy it is to test for it in your home and the solutions if it is found. For more information, or if you are unable to attend and need to purchase a test kit, call 780-488-6995 ext 2257 or email email@example.com
Please be aware that the City of Edmonton has changed their policy on community league discounts, reducing it from 20% to 10%. Current information on the policy can be found on the City of Edmonton web site.
