Congratulations to the 19 school districts in Iowa who are participating in the 2017-18 School Radon Training & Support System (SRTSS) Expansion Project. These districts are proactively preventing radon-induced lung cancer by learning to test their buildings for radon themselves.
Thanks to funding received by Energy Association of Iowa Schools (EAIS) from the Iowa Cancer Consortium and Iowa Department of Public Health, each school district is receiving a matching grant toward training and test kits, as well as access to a mitigation assistance fund to be shared as needed.
While EAIS is out of grants, more Iowa school districts are welcome to learn more and participate next year. Please contact Julie Weisshaar for more information.
