Cal Murphy Receives the 2009 Illinois Excellence in Radon Award from IEMA

At Illinois Emergency Management Agencies’ Seventh Annual Radon Networking Day in Springfield, IL, on January 11, 2010, Cal Murphy made a presentation reporting the success of the Southern Illinois Radon Awareness Task Force’s Awareness Initiative. In partnership with IEMA and the American Lung Association-UM, 1,000 radon test kits were offered free to the residents of a ten countywide area in Southern Illinois. The ten homes with the highest radon levels were mitigated free of charge. The materials were supplied by American Lung Association of the Upper MidWest, and the homes were tested and mitigated without charge by Southern Illinois Radon Awareness Task Force members, Dave Parkhill and Cal Murphy.
