Are there Lead Hazards in My Home?

Categorized as: Community & Neighborhood
Event tags: Environment, lead, lead hazard, home

Description:

Speaker: Mary T. McAuliffe

Session Description: If your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint. Even low levels of lead can have significant effects on a child. The most important step parents can take is to prevent lead exposure before it occurs. Learn about sources of lead hazards in older homes, yards and playgrounds, and some simple steps you can take to protect your family.

Registration will open in February at http://westmontlibrary.org/
