Evaluation of Radon Outreach Programming in Chaffee and Park Counties, Colorado
Jones, Kurt M.
Journal of Extension, v53 n5 Article 5RIB6 Oct 2015
Colorado State University Extension in Chaffee and Park Counties conducted numerous outreach educational activities between 2007 and 2010. A follow-up evaluation was conducted to determine whether one outreach activity was more effective at encouraging individuals to test their homes for radon or to mitigate their homes. Participants in the face-to-face class reported an increase in knowledge about the hazards of radon gas exposure and the need to test homes/businesses on an individual basis. Based on these data, continued outreach education is warranted, a variety of outreach activities is necessary, and individual testing of homes and businesses is needed.
