Radon Monitoring

Radon Monitoring

Radon is prevalent in East Tennessee. It is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that is produced by the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil. RBHOO owns 3 electronic testers. A system was established to record those who wanted to test and keep track of the readings obtained. The hope was to find trends and make recommendations from the testing results. These testers continue to be available to any member who wishes to test or retest.

Yellow Dot

Yellow Dot

The Tennessee State Yellow DOT Program is designed to provide first responders with an individual’s medical information in the event of an emergency on Tennessee’s roadways. Participants in the program will receive a Yellow DOT folder with a medical information sheet to keep in the glove compartment of the vehicle, and a Yellow DOT decal. The Yellow DOT decal should be placed on the driver’s side rear window of the vehicle. The information in the Yellow DOT folder is not kept by any agency or person and will only be accessed by first responders in case of a roadway incident where emergency medical attention is needed.
