Event Description: 
Our department has been very busy in January promoting RADON awarness. On January 11, 2010 we kicked off our awarness campaign with a Radon Proclamation signing by our local county Judge Executive, Wallace Taylor. From Jan. 11 through Jan. 25, 2010 we had a manned Radon awareness exhibit set up in the county courthouse lobby. This exhibit reached an estimated 1500 persons during this time frame. It was manned by 3 health department staff members most of the time. We were able to personally talk one on one with people about Radon and encourage them to test. We were able to provide 32 free short term radon test kits to those who wanted to test their homes. We also displayed the CanSar tee shirt during some of that time and people were very inquisitive about the shirt and what's it's purpose was. This was a great education time for everyone involved. As a result of this exhibit the county judge has requested that the courthouse be tested for radon next month. I will attach some photos of the exhibit and the CanSar Tee shirt promotion.
