Pregnant? Parent or caregiver for a child under the age of six?
If so, it is important to become familiar with the common causes and dangers of lead based paint poisoning. This is especially important, if your place of residence was built before 1978.
Salt Lake County’s Lead Safe Housing Program is the perfect place to learn how to protect your child from harmful lead exposure.
You might even be surprised, as your family could be eligible to receive FREE services through this program.
Note: A blood test is the only way to tell if a child has been poisoned by lead. Usually, a “finger poke” is all that is needed to initially test for lead poisoning. Salt Lake County Lead Safe Housing Program provides testing for children under the age of six who live in qualifying properties.
