Gateway has a new way for you to test your home for radon if you live in Bath, Elliott, Menifee, Morgan, or Rowan County. Simply click this link, fill out the form, and a radon test kit will be mailed to you. Please fill out the form completely. If you need assistance please feel send an email to the email address given at the very bottom of the form. There is also some additional information down below in the Announcements section.
The Gateway District Health Department (Bath, Elliott, Menifee, Morgan and Rowan counties) has a website you can use to order a radon test kit to test your home. Kits are distributed on a first come first served basis while supplies last. This is part of a grant through the Kentucky Department for Public Health. To obtain a free kit simply scroll up to the radon box and click the link. It will take you to a form that you can fill out and a test kit will be mailed to you free of charge. The instructions for conducting the test are simple and are included in the kit. You will send the kit to a lab to be analyzed by placing the test strip inside the included postage paid envelope. This also is free of charge to you. The results will be mailed or emailed to you (but please print legibly and accurately). Currently there are very few certified radon mitigation (mitigation is another term for installing a venting system to remove the radon from your home) in our area. If you need to find a certified radon mitigation installer you can contact the Kentucky Department for Public Health radon program. Visit the Kentucky Department for Public Health radon page here.
As a follow up to the "See Something, Say Something"campaign email, the Kentucky Food Safety Branch has been advised by our state Office of Homeland Security, that a 24/7 tip line for the reporting of suspicious activity has been established. Kentucky businesses, including food establishments, are encouraged to utilize the tip line and the online reporting tool.
