The R.M. of Lakeshore has partnered with a national organization to spread awareness of radon levels in the home.
Pam Warkentin, project manager of ‘Take Action on Radon’ says testing is very important this time of year.
“We encourage people to test during the winter because we have our homes closed up; we’re spending more time indoors than ever before, so it’s really important to know your radon levels inside your home.”
Radon is a by-product of the break-down of uranium, and high levels in the home can lead to lung cancer.
To sign up for a test kit you can call the R.M. of Lakeshore office at (204) 732-2333.
