    I’m not so sure about going through the State, but testing your home is a good idea.

    Hello Homeschoolers,

    My name is Catherine Rosfjord and I work for the NC Radon Program. My job is to raise awareness about the dangers of indoor radon and to encourage people to test their homes and schools for radon. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US. Because homeschoolers spend a great deal of time in the home, it is particularly important for you to test your home for radon. January is Radon Action Month and we will be giving away free radon test kits. If you are interested in receiving a free radon test kit for your homeschool, please visit our website at www.ncradon.org. When filling out the request form, please note on your address that you are a homeschool. This helps us to track how many schools in NC have been tested for radon, a number we are responsible for reporting to the US Environmental Protection Agency every year.

    I am also available to give presentations about radon and radiation if this is something in which your homeschool association is interested.

    Thanks for your time and have a great 2008!
