What services does Tri-County provide for children with EBLLs?

When a child has a confirmed EBLL greater than or equal to 10 micrograms/deciliter, Tri-County Health Dept. Industrial Hygiene Program staff will schedule an onsite visit to identify lead sources in the home. Tri-County has trained staff to test paint, soil, and household objects for lead. We will provide both the parent and the physician with a report of our findings. These services are provided free of charge.
