Is Your Family Safe at Home? Lead Prevention Day Tomorrow

Just a quick reminder that the Bridgeport Department of Health will be visiting us tomorrow, Tuesday October 26 from 11-6 to address the issue of lead poisoning in children.  Here are some facts that I learned; stop by tomorrow and learn some facts of your own!

- 80% of Stratford homes contain lead, primarily in windows pre-1977
- A new law requires windows in pre-1977 homes to be replaced by EPA approved contractors
- Lead poisoning can cause developmental delays in children
- Toys can also contain lead or cadmium

Want to learn more? Stop by tomorrow, and keep your family safe!
