Radon Control Program Manager
The Radon Control Program works to protect Rhode Islanders from lung cancer due to radon exposure by ensuring that no homes, schools, or other high priority public buildings have unacceptable radon levels. Program activities include: Implementation and enforcement of the mandatory radon testing and mitigation requirements for public and high priority buildings, certification and quality control of the licensed radon professional infrastructure, promote radon testing and mitigation in residential properties through education and outreach campaigns, promote radon resistant new construction in homes, schools and public buildings, and manage and maintain a comprehensive radon database of public/high priority and residential test results. The Program also collaborates with and supports the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's initiative, Protecting People and Families from Radon: A Federal Action Plan for Saving Lives.
