River City Radon Inc. is a locally owned residential radon measurement and mitigation company in Saskatoon. We are certified with the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program C-NRPP, members of CARST, and Saskatoon & Region Home Builders Association.
We are highly passionate about Radon awareness as we are in a hot spot for the radioactive gas in Saskatchewan. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and is the leading cause of lung cancer in non smokers. Radon is a gas that you can not see, smell, or taste and the only way to know if you are being exposed to it in your home is to test.
We are dedicated to reducing Radon exposure for families and lowering the risk of lung cancer in our community.
Kerri has lived in Saskatoon for most of her life, has 3 children and has had a successful real estate career for over 9 years. She recently fought and won her battle with stage 2 lung cancer which was caused by radon exposure. The cancer diagnosis was a shock and it caused her to look further in to the radon issue in SK. This grew into a passion for educating the public on the dangers of radon exposure in our homes, and she became the SK Lung Association's Radon Ambassador in 2019. Kerri decided that she wanted to go further and help people reduce their exposure levels by adding mitigation systems to their homes. With the partnership of Dean, River City Radon Inc. was born in 2020!
"As I learned more about how common it is to have high radon levels in our homes in Saskatchewan, I wanted to contribute to Radon awareness and ultimately mitigation. I hope homeowners test for Radon and then we will help them to reduce their numbers in the home as one way to protect themselves and their family from this cancer-causing gas."
Dean was born and raised in small town Saskatchewan and grew up with a large family and a strong work ethic helping out on the farm. He started his work career working in construction and the removal of asbestos in commercial buildings. From there he worked under ground at a potash mine and joined the mine rescue team, and on the side he has always enjoyed carpentry and building decks and fences. Dean is the guy his friends call when they need something done or fixed. In his spare time he enjoys spending time at the lake with his wife and kids.
“After a member of my extended family, Kerri, was diagnosed with lung cancer due to radon and I then found out a house I used to live in tested high for radon levels, it peaked my interest to get more involved in mitigating radon in Saskatchewan. If something can be done to reduce cancer-causing radon levels then I want to be a part of it.”
Dean is a fully C-NRPP certified Radon Measurement and Mitigation Professional.
