Radon awareness workshop in Pagosa

San Juan Basin Health Department and the Colorado State University Cooperative Extension are sponsoring a Radon Awareness workshop in Pagosa Springs on Monday, Feb. 9.

It will take place at the Pagosa Springs Community Center from 10 to 11 a.m.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that can enter the home. Winter is a good time to test your home for radon as windows and doors tend to remain closed, which traps radon in the structure.

Free radon test kits are available (as long as supplies last) at San Juan Basin Health Department.

For more information on this workshop or test kits, call 262-2409, Ext. 24. For more information on radon, visit www.sjbhd.org.
