Test Your Home for Radon

October 25, 2022

For residents of Chilliwack, Hope, Kent, Harrison, Mission, and Electoral Area H now is the perfect time to take action against indoor radon gas.

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and is found in homes across Canada. To help raise awareness, the Fraser Valley Regional District, in partnership with Take Action on Radon and BC Lung, is taking part in the 100 radon test kit challenge.

Radon is a naturally occurring colourless, odourless, radioactive gas that is released when uranium breaks down in soils and rocks. Radon released from the ground into outdoor air gets diluted and is therefore not harmful. However, radon is a problem in indoor settings, where it can build up and pose a risk to your health.

The 100 test kit challenge provides 100 easy-to-use test kits for residents to test for radon in their homes. Testing is as simple as placing a kit on the lowest inhabited floor of their home for 100 days and then returning the kit to a drop-off location.

Kits are limited and will be given to the first residents to claim the kits. Sign up for your free kit: takeactiononradon.ca/100-radon-test-kit-challenge
