Broome County Health Department Highlights Lead Poisoning Risk

The Broome County Health Department is addressing the risk of lead poisoning.

The group warns that lead paint is toxic to your family and should only be handled by a certified professional. The risk of lead poisoning is greatest for young children and pregnant women.

High levels of lead in a child's blood can lead to serious health issues.

Health Department officials say they want to work with local contractors and property owners to eliminate lead hazards.
