During my interview with Steve Aukstakalnis of AlertsUSA Inc., we forgot to mention this great service that he sponsors:
With the ongoing Fukushima disaster in Japan, failing waste storage tanks at Hanford, and faltering nuclear power facilities across the country, the recent release of radioactive materials into the air at the DOE Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad, NM is again heightening concerns about possible health risks to the general public, and rightfully so.
Are there radioactive ‘hot particles’ floating around in the air in your local area that could be breathed in? What about inside of your home? The government tracks these emissions closely, but not necessarily right where you live and rarely is the information ever provided to the public.
Without any way to test for local contamination or exposure, many individuals could be worrying needlessly, especially about minute, non-dangerous increases over natural background radiation.
In keeping with the core mission of the Preparedness Podcast of teaching self reliance instead of “government reliance”, we call to your attention a free service that will help you better assess if you should be concerned and if you need to act.
RadTest4u.com is conducting free testing of home and car air filters for radioactive hot particles. Once you have shipped them your filter, specialized instruments such as a Radiation Isotope Identifier (called a “RIID” by the Dept of Homeland Security) are used to quickly detect, identify and analyze any radioactive isotopes, along with dose rates.
Results of the test will be returned to you by email within about 7-10 after receipt of the filter.
Again, the tests are completely free. All you have to do is ship a small box. You’re out nothing but postage and a replacement filter.
