Home Health/ Preparedness

Prepare Kansas - Help your family prepare for financial recovery from a flood, storm, fire, or other disaster.

Radon Education and Home Test Kits - Radon exposure in homes and other indoor environments is the leading cause of lung cancer death for non-smokers in the United States, and the second overall cause of lung cancer death behind tobacco smoking. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that approximately 1 in 4 homes in Kansas will test at or above the EPA's radon action level of 4.0 picocuries of radon per liter of indoor air (pCi/L). The US Surgeon General and the Kansas Radon Program recommends all homes in Kansas be tested for radon gas.
