Radon Mitigation in Schools in Lancaster, PA

Radon Mitigation in Schools in LancasterAttending a public school in Lancaster, PA does not have to be as unsafe or as unhealthy as it currently is. We all know the recent tragedies in the news, and have all have various views of how we can improve the safety, but despite the constant debate and chatter, we can improve schools in Lancaster through one simple action. Radon mitigation in schools can provide the necessary air purification to reduce the toxic gas and prevent it from taking over your Lancaster school.

Statistics have shown that one out of every five schools has a high level of radon gas, and is in need of mitigation. Unfortunately, this means that 70,000 schools have high levels, which means millions upon millions of teachers, students, and faculty are in need of radon reduction. Radon mitigation in schools can help us all ensure that the future of America is receiving a quality education in a safe environment.

Many residents of Lancaster already know just how dangerous radon gas is, but in case you do not, it is known to cause death to a grand total of 20,000 people each and every year. Recent studies have shown that 15% of all lung cancer cases are actually caused by radon gas, meaning that residents of Lancaster who have never smoked in their life may still be subjected to all the adverse effects of cigarettes if their home or school has high levels of radon gas.

A new bill is being proposed from a congress member in Iowa which will provide grant funding for radon mitigation in schools. If passed, the way this grant will operate is by providing funding for testing in all public schools. Schools in Lancaster which have higher than normal levels of this gas will receive additional grant funding for radon mitigation in schools. This ensures that money is only being spent on schools truly in need of mitigation, and by using grants, we ensure that we are not taking any money away from the educational budget.
