The Florida radon department is a joke but this may interest some since it’s a national event.
You are cordially invited to attend the 21st National/International Radon Training Conference. This is a great opportunity since the meeting is in Orlando. Please go to our website or visit the conference website (http://radon.doh.state.fl.us) where you may register - http://www.crcpd.org/Radon/NationalConference/2011AnnualMeeting/21st%20Annual%20Radon%20Training.aspx
Mitigators may be interested on the pre-conference training entitled “Introduction to the Characterization of Airflow Dynamics in Buildings for State Radon Investigators”
You may view the agenda at http://www.crcpd.org/Radon/NationalConference/2011AnnualMeeting/Announcement.pdf
We hope to see you there.

U.S. Surgeon General Health Advisory
“Indoor radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.” January 2005.
