RADON

Radon is responsible for over 20,000 American lives each year. However, it is also considered a preventable health hazard. Although you cannot see, taste, or smell radon, a person is able to test one's home for radon, and if necessary, apply techniques to reduce indoor radon. The only way to know if you have high radon levels is to test!

 

Tribal Radon Action Month (RAM):

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated January as National Radon Action Month (RAM). Radon Programs across the nation take this time to sponsor and/or host activities and events dedicated towards radon awareness and to further educating the people of the numerous radon issues. Every January the Bad River Tribal Indoor Radon Program will sponsor an event that brings radon awareness t the community, and further encourages people to test their homes.

The Tribal Indoor Radon Program will sponsor two events for RAM; the Radon Poster Contest and the Radon Coloring Contest. The goal of these two contests are intended to raise awareness about radon and further encourage every person to test their homes. Posting of rules and contest information will usually ocurr in late Neovember, whcih the contest will usually end in early February. Below are links to the past Coloring and Poster contests:
