Radon Kits

Radon Screening Program with Alberta Public Libraries

According to the Alberta Lung Association, radon is an invisible, odourless, and tasteless radioactive gas which can get trapped in the home. This means that the only way to see how much radon is in your home is to test for it. This is important to do as long-term exposure to high levels of radon can lead to lung cancer.

In partnership with the Alberta Lung Association and with support from Health Canada, Yellowhead  has Radon Kits available. Because radon levels are naturally lower during the summer months holds have not been filled for the last few months, but Yellowhead patrons can now place holds and checkout one of our eighteen Radon Kits for three weeks at a time. These kits are intended as an initial screening only, as long term testing of three months is required to get an accurate average radon level in a home. You can reserve your kit by clicking here.
