Welcome to Southwind District!
The world can be a scary place sometimes, and not knowing fact from fiction can make it scarier! The Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is at the forefront of peoples' minds across the globe, and information, right AND wrong, is being thrown at us from every direction.
We will continue to help sort through that information and present it to you in a helpful manner. Click on the "Covid-19 Resources" link on the left menu. We will bring information from reliable sources - Extension Universities, government agencies, and more - and print it here. And if you have questions that we can't answer, we will find someone that can.
A "FAQ" list that is published by the KDHE, and updated regularly, is available here.
No matter where you live in Kansas,
K-State Research and Extension is nearby – no matter the circumstances. We are a steady voice during trying times.
Together, we can do this and will emerge stronger than ever.
January is National Radon Month
Every January, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urges everyone across the United States to test their homes for radon gas. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can seep into homes from the ground, and in some cases, well water supply. EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler reports that "Millions of homes have been tested for radon and repaired, but millions more homes with high levels of this radioactive gas remain."
Radon testing kits are available in each Southwind Extension District office.
More information can be found on our Family, Home, and Money page.
