NRAM – National Radon Action Month

Welcome to the AARST NRAM 2022 Resource Guide. This page has several communication tools to help equip the radon community to spread awareness and help save lives. Included, you will find ideas, templates, and instructions on making a successful NRAM in your community. AARST is here to support your efforts and cheer on your successes as you participate in National Radon Action Month. Send us your accomplishments, and we will feature your successes on our social media platforms all month long! YOU SAVE LIVES EVERY DAY – THANK YOU!

Resources for your success!

While creating radon awareness should be a year-long endeavor, January has been used to bring extra visibility to the cause. Radon professionals have acquired proclamations, tv and radio ads, distributed our multi-language resource guides to their communities, and connected with customers with our pre-made social media posts. This year we are excited to add a printable door hanger and postcard. You can even add your company logo!

The AARST Advocacy committee has thoughtfully assembled several NRAM resources to help you spread the word about the hazards of elevated radon levels. If you have any suggestions for resources you would like to be available in the future, please email membership@aarst.org.

Proclamations are a way to connect with your local officials to proclaim January is National Radon Action Month. Need instructions?
