Radon and Indoor Air Program

The Department of Health Radon and Indoor Air Quality program was original created by the State Legislature in 1988 as the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services Radiation Control / Radon Program, a statewide program responsible for aiding the public in protecting itself from unnecessary radiation exposure from radon. Over time the program has evolved and now can supply technical information in dealing with general indoor environmental or air quality and toxicology related exposure issues. The program now part of the Public Health Toxicology Section includes a statewide coordinator for indoor air quality in addition to the radon group.
