Free radon test kits, workshops offered during National Radon Action Month
January is National Radon Action Month. The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Center is working with the State of Alaska to provide workshops and free short-term radon test kits to Alaskans.
Radon is a colorless, odorless cancer-causing gas that is commonly found in Alaska. With homes closed up during the winter, January is a good time to test for the gas. Tests are available while supplies last at the Anchorage Outreach Center, 219 E. International Airport Road, Suite 100, and the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys, 3354 College Road in Fairbanks. You can also receive a test in the mail by filling out an online questionnaire.
The Anchorage Outreach Center will host two free virtual classes. Registration is required.
