ABOUT THE COALITION
Missoula Radon Coaltion
Why a Missoula Radon Coaltion?
Radon is a problem in Missoula. A preventable problem. Reducing radon exposure is a large project and many groups in our community have a stake in this issue including homeowners, builders, mitigators, public health workers, health care professionals, realtors, building officials, and lenders, to name a few.
The Missoula Radon Coalition was started in 2015 to help increase awareness and education about the risks of radon exposure in Missoula. As a coalition of we can pool resources, share knowledge, and utilize our diverse skills to work toward the goal of limiting radon exposure in Missoula.
We aim to:
Educate the public about radon risks and solutions
Increase testing for radon in homes and businesses
Further Radon-Resistant New Construction practices
Increase mitigation options and funding for low-income residents
