January is:

Exposure to Radon gas kills 21,000 people each year. Test your home today!


January is National Radon Awareness Month

High levels of radon have been found in homes in and around Iron County. Exposure to radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Each year in the United States, approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths are caused by radon. "People that have never smoked are being diagnosed with lung cancer. Iron County has pockets of high levels of radon in our soil, therefore it is very important every household test for radon" according to Zona Wick, Health Officer for the Iron County Health Department.Testing is low cost, fast and easy. Test kits are available for $10.00 at the County Health Department. January is Radon Awareness Month nationwide, so the Iron County Health Department is encouraging people to test their homes if they have never been tested before. If you have any question about radon exposure, please call at 715-561-2191.Most homes with high radon levels can be fixed for $800 to $1,500. If your test result is elevated or if you have questions about making your home safe, contact the iron County Health Department or the Northern Wisconsin Radon Information Center at 1-715-748-1410. An ounce or prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Our Mission

The Iron County Wisconsin Health Department is here to serve the residents of Iron County Wisconsin by protecting health, protecting the enviroment,and preventing disease and injury.




The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has upgraded our website to better serve Wisconsin citizens. Our agency meets many different needs-but as a whole we are here to protect and promote the health and safety of the people of Wisconsin. A modern, well‐designed, and more responsive website will help us to achieve that.

We are using a web development tool called Drupal that has been adopted widely across both business and government. Drupal is an open source web content management system with an active development community. In other words, it is a free tool for building websites that has caught on as a practical and innovative solution worldwide.

The user experience is extremely important to us, and this upgrade has allowed us to greatly improve it.

**We studied how people navigate and why they come to   the website-and applied what we learned. Overall, visitors to our website should find it less complicated to browse, search, and find what they want.

**We are also using best practices for design. The new look is uncluttered and easier on the user's eyes.

**Our website is now optimized for mobile, which means you can view our site on any device with ease.

**We continue our ongoing agency commitment to accessibility and compliance with federal regulation, sec
