This month, the City of Fort Collins celebrates ten years of its Healthy Homes program and encourages all community members to sign up for a free home assessment for the chance to win an anniversary gift bag.

The program educates participants about how to improve the indoor air quality and general safety of their living spaces. It aims to help connect the dots between home and health by offering free assessments that include tips and best practices for keeping our residences places of safety and respite.

Included with each assessment is a free radon test kit, Healthy Homes cleaner, carbon monoxide detector, and smoke alarm, plus a wealth of information. The program provides low cost or no cost recommendations that can be easily implemented. Currently assessments are provided over the phone by trained Master Home Educators and typically take less than an hour. For more information, please visit the City of Fort Collins Healthy Homes Program.

The Healthy Homes program is also excited to share the online Healthy Homes Do-It-Yourself assessment, where you can assess your home at your convenience. This tool is intuitive, easy to use, and contains short videos to explain the process. Try it out https://healthyhomes.fcgov.com/.
