Get Radon On Your Radar
Date:12/8/2008

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared January "National Radon Action Month." In support of this nationwide call to action, First Alert is encouraging people across the country to get radon on their radar screens and to proactively test their homes for this potentially fatal gas.

Aurora, Ill. (PRWEB) December 8, 2008 -- You can't see it, smell it or taste it - but it is in your home and it can kill you. What is it?

It is the second leading cause of lung cancer (number one among non-smokers) in the United States and is responsible for approximately 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year.

In support of this nationwide call to action, First Alert is encouraging people across the country to get radon on their radar screens and to proactively test their homes for this potentially fatal gas.

How to take action:

A radon level above 4 pCi/L is considered dangerous and should be immediately mitigated. The problem lies in the fact that radon is virtually impossible to detect through human senses.

With the First Alert Radon Gas Test Kit, homeowners can put their minds at ease. Available for under $25 through most major retailers and hardware stores, or online at http://www.amazon.com and http://www.firstalertstore.com, the kit comes wit
