    When a gas is odorless and tasteless, how do you know if it's reaching dangerous levels in your home? You test for it. January is National Radon Action Month, and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan (HDNW) is again helping area residents ensure safe radon levels in their homes, schools, and offices by offering free test kits. The annual campaign is called "Give a Can, Get a Kit." To participate, residents exchange nonperishable food for a free radon test kit at HDNW's offices in Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet, and Otsego counties.
