Is Radon Gas hiding in your house?
Nov 15, 2016 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| By donation
Radon gas? Did you know that radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer? And did you also know than many homes in the Columbia Valley contain unsafe levels of this gas?
And finally, do you know if it is seeping into your home? It would seem that we cannot completely get away from the outdoors even when we’re indoors!
Wildsight is bringing an expert to David Thompson Secondary School to provide you with valuable information about radon, its risks to health and its prevalence in the Columbia Valley. Nate Sereda, a long-time resident of the area, is a Certified Radon Professional (certification by the Government of Canada), working with Energy Advise. His job involves the measurement of radon levels and the installation of radon mitigation systems in accordance with standards set by the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP).
Everyone’s welcome to join Nate to learn about the threat posed by radon, its prevalence in our area and what you can do about it.
Admission by donation.
