January is Radon Action/Awareness Month

Did you know that one in every four Michigan homes is expected to have radon levels that exceed the recommended federal action level? Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can enter homes through cracks in floors or walls. Radon particles, when inhaled, can lead to development of lung cancer. Because it is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, radon can only be detected through a radon test kit. This month, several counties are offering free or reduced-price radon kits.

The Oakland County Health Division is offering kits for $5 (normally $10). Residents can purchase the discounted test kits at the following Oakland County Health Division offices: 

North Oakland Health Center, 1200 N. Telegraph, Building 34E, Pontiac

Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

The Macomb County Health Department is offering free test kits throughout January. The kits are only available at the Health Department’s Central Health Center in Mount Clemens located at 43525 Elizabeth Road.
