DES Offering Free Radon Air Test Kits in recognition of January as National Radon Action Month

Concord, NH - The New Hampshire Radon Program at DES is offering free radon air test kits (while supplies last) to New Hampshire residents during the month of January in honor of National Radon Action Month.

Did you know radon gas kills more people in New Hampshire on an annual basis than anything else that the Department of Environmental Services deals with? Many people ignore the warnings about radon gas. Maybe because radon has no color, taste, or odor people don’t think about it. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can build to high levels in residential homes. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking, and the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Testing is the only way to know if your home or well water has elevated radon levels. Equipment is available for homes that may need to reduce elevated radon levels.

To get a free radon air test kit go to (Note: All Test Kits Have Been Distributed) Call (603) 271-6845 for more information or assistance with the application process. For more information please contact the New Hampshire Radon Program at (603) 271-6845 or
