100th Annual Pennsylvania Farm Show kicks off this weekend!

This weekend kicks off the 100th Annual Pennsylvania Farm Show whereby the state’s farmers and agriculture vendors come together to showcase Pennsylvania’s plentiful and vibrant agriculture industry.

As the largest indoor agricultural event in the United States, the Farm Show attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year who are given the opportunity to learn more about the state’s agriculture industry, from its dairy farms and vineyards to its livestock and rich cultivation. During this event, attendees will be able to view thousands of exhibits, enjoy the company of nearly 6,000 animals and taste delicious, locally grown and farmed foods.

The Farm Show will run from January 9th until January 16th at the PA Farm Show Complex and Expo in Harrisburg. For more information about this year’s show, please click here.

PennDOT partners with popular navigation app Waze for real-time updates

PennDOT recently announced a partnership with Waze, a real-time crowdsourced navigation application for smartphones which allows drivers to share road conditions.

The program promotes more efficient traffic monitoring by sharing free, anonymous, crowdsourced incident reports and slow-down data from Waze users (called Wazers). Waze will receive PennDOT’s road condition reporting data to share with its users, while the department will use data reported by Wazers to supplement internal traffic-condition monitoring.

Residents should test homes for radon

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is urging all Pennsylvanians to test their homes for radon. Radon is a deadly gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers in the U.S.

According to information from DEP, radon is everywhere due to Pennsylvania’s geology. DEP says that January, which is Radon Action Month, is the best month to test your home since windows and doors are typically closed and tightly sealed which yields the most accurate results.

State law requires radon service providers to be certified by DEP. DEP’s website contains the list of state certified radon service providers – view the list here.

You can also obtain a hard copy of the directory to verify a company’s certification by calling 1-800-23RADON.

In 2014, a home in nearby Lehigh County was found to have the highest radon level ever recorded in the country! The home had radon levels 900 times more than EPA’s action level. The owners were recommended to vacate their home until the situation was remedied.

Each year, roughly 20,000 lung cancer deaths are attributed to radon exposure.
