Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer.

You can also loan a radon detection kit from your local library!

 

Radon Detector Library Loan Program

 

Why loan out radon detectors? By providing this program through the Nova Scotia Public Libraries, we are increasing awareness around the province about the dangers of radon gas
and the need to test and mitigate. Ultimately, we want all Nova Scotian home owners to be aware of radon and understand they should get their homes tested.
 
Will this provide an accurate reading of radon in my home? The radon detectors being provided for loan are intended for short-term testing and do not replace the long-term tests recommended by Health Canada. Because the loan period needs to be limited, the intent of providing these devices for loan is to simply provide homeowners with an idea of the radon levels in their home.

Does my library have these? You can check availability through your library's website or by calling your local branch.

Will more devices be available? Over 150 devices have been distributed amongst the NS Public Libraries for loan. Additional devices have been added since the program's inception. You can still buy a radon detector from the Lung Association of Nova Scotia.
