    January is National Radon Action Month.  The Trumbull Health Department urges residents to learn more about radon—a leading cause of lung cancer—and to test for radon in their homes.

    To help promote testing, the Trumbull Health Department has a limited number of free testing kits available to Trumbull residents. Stop by the Health Department at 335 White Plains Road to pick up your test kit today!

    Radon is an invisible and odorless gas that can enter homes through cracks in the basement floor or from well water. Prolonged exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Only one in five homes has a radon problem. But the only way to know if your home is free of radon is to test it.
