What can I do to protect myself and my family from lead exposure?

Visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for several examples of how risk can be reduced.  Lead can be in everyday items in your home. Old or imported items are more likely to have lead based finishes and paint in them. If you would like any of your household items tested for lead, contact Kayla Lesperance at 303 363 3030.
