Lead Poisoning Prevention Program

Description:

The aim of the Lead Poisoning Prevention Program is to educate County residents about the hazards associated with lead in an effort to prevent exposures, especially to residents who are most vulnerable to its effects, i.e. children, pregnant women.  We also offer lead screenings for children and provide follow up for individuals with elevated lead levels.  We also provide information on recalled products that violate the lead paint standard in as timely a manner as possible.
