Pennsylvania Residents Urged to Test Homes for Radon
HARRISBURG -- The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today urged all Pennsylvanians to test their homes for radon, a deadly radioactive gas that’s the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers in the United States. DEP also urged residents to take action to reduce radon levels in their homes if they are high.
“Due to our geology, radon is found everywhere in Pennsylvania. For that reason, we urge residents to test their homes to protect themselves and their family’s health,” said DEP Secretary John Quigley. “Winter is the best time to test your home for radon because doors and windows are typically closed and tightly sealed, producing the most accurate results.”

The truck departed Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station en route to Oak Ridge, TN. Maryland Department of Environment responded to the site with radiation detectors and the hazmat team. The radioactive material was classified as low level waste and contained within the vehicle. The radiation levels on contact were very low, and at 1 meter, radiation levels were at background levels. The State Police closed the road for accident reconstruction.
