Summer is a time to get your hands dirty! But… WATCH OUT FOR LEAD. Lead found in dirt around your home is usually from exterior house lead paint. If you have an older home (built before 1978), there may be lead dust or chips in the dirt next to your home. Make sure to locate play areas and gardens away from your house or garage to avoid lead exposure from the dirt. For more information
Are you pregnant? Did you know that pregnant women with high blood lead levels can have high blood pressure, miscarriage, small babies, and brain, kidney, and nervous system damage in the infant? It can even cause your child to have learning or behavior problems. All pregnant women with even one risk factor should have a blood lead level done with their provider. For a list of risk factors, please visit
If you are in the Brown County Central Library, look for our display! The display is located in the children's book section and will be up the enitre month of June.
Spring is in the air, time to open your windows and enjoy the breeze. But… WATCH OUT FOR LEAD. If you have older windows, they could be covered with lead paint or varnish. When you open the window, the friction causes lead dust. Lead dust can get on surfaces and objects that children touch (such as toys). Settled lead dust can re-enter the air when the home is vacuumed or swept, or people walk through it. To reduce exposure to lead dust, it is especially important to maintain all painted surfaces, and to clean frequently. To learn more about how to protect your family from lead exposure, please visit the EPA website.
Did you know that if you work with lead, you could be bringing home this toxic metal? Lead dust can be on your clothes, shoes, skin, hair, and hands. What can you do if you work with lead? Wash, shower (if possible) and change into clean clothes and shoes before leaving work to keep lead out of your home and vehicle. Get more tips athttps://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/p01296.pdf
