Description

Take Action on Radon, a coalition of national health organizations, is working with the Village of McBride to distribute 100 free radon test kits this November as part of a broader initiative to raise awareness about the health risks associated with radon and to collect data on radon levels in the community.

A recent study commissioned by Health Canada found that only 8% of British Columbians have tested their home for radon, a radioactive gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers.

The Village of McBride is happy to support this initiative and encourages residents in the community and outlying areas to participate by attending the Awareness Event on November 19, 2019 at the Robson Valley Community Hall between 4:00 and 7:00 pm to register for their free kit,” says Village of McBride Mayor Eugene Runtz.“ He also stated, “Testing your home for radon is simple, and there are proven and effective methods to reduce radon in your home that can save lives.”  For more information contact the Village Office at 250-569-2229.
