Lead Poisoning

Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program

The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program helps to insure that children less than six years old are safe from lead-based paint hazards. Along with the regional environmental health specialist, lead inspections can be performed to try and determine the source of a child’s lead poisoning and when a child’s blood lead level has exceeded the acceptable limits.
