January is Radon Action Month
Longmont Mayor Joan Peck has proclaimed January as “Official National Radon Action Month” in Longmont. With this proclamation, the Longmont City Council encourages all residents to learn about the health threat of radon in the Colorado Rocky Mountain region and to take appropriate steps to mitigate the hazards associated with high radon levels. Read the entire proclamation. The City of Longmont's Public Works & Natural Resources Department has made several Safety Siren™ Radon Gas Detectors available to library patrons so that they can easily test the levels of radon gas in their homes. Check out a meter from the Longmont Public Library located at 409 Fourth Avenue. Learn more about radon at https://www.bouldercounty.org/environment/healthy-home/phr3/.
