FAIRBANKS- The Cooperative Extension Service has planned three meetings this month in the Fairbanks area about radon.
Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause health problems for humans, including lung cancer.
The gas has been detected in a number of Fairbanks homes at levels the federal government considers unsafe.
Energy specialist Art Nash will discuss where radon comes from, how to detect it and how to take care of it.
The meetings are planned for noon Wednesday at North Pole City Hall. That will be followed by two presentations in Fairbanks. The first is 5:30 p.m., Jan. 15, at Schaible Auditorium at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The last will be at noon, Jan. 29, at Noel Wien Library.
