Erie County Legislator Ed Rath, in partnership with the Erie County Department of Environment and Planning, will host a Radon Awareness Event at the Clarence Farmers Market on Saturday, June 22 to educate residents about potential risks and how to test their homes for radon.

 

“Erie County’s Radon Awareness Program helps residents understand what radon is, as well as how and why to test for radon. Erie County is designated an EPA Zone 1, which is the highest risk, and several areas are considered ‘hot spots’ for radon, including a higher than average risk reported in Clarence,” said Legislator Rath. “I invite residents to stop by the Radon Awareness Event to learn more and order a test kit if they are interested in testing their home. Testing is easy and order forms are also available for $8 through my office.”

 

Legislator Rath and a radon specialist from Erie County Department of Environment and Planning will be available to answer questions and discuss radon concerns at the Clarence Hollow Farmers Market, located at 10717 Main St., Clarence, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 22.

 

“Through this event we can help residents answer the question, ‘do I have radon in my home?’ And there are several reasons that you need to know the answer to that question. First and foremost being that radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers,” Legislator Rath added.
