January is Kansas Radon Action Month!
January 2015 is both Kansas Radon Action Month (KRAM) (sponsored by the Kansas Radon Program (KRP) and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE)) and National Radon Action Month (NRAM) (sponsored nationally by the EPA).
The KRP will be airing both television and radio public service messages January 15 through March 15, 2015 in association with the Kansas Association of Broadcasters (KAB). Winter is an excellent time for Kansas residents to test their homes for radon.
The KRP encourages newspaper columns, radio shows, newsletter articles, or other awareness efforts about radon in January during KRAM. If you would like to have us on a radio call in show or other program please contact Brian Hanson: 785.532.6026.
