Child Lead Poisoning Prevention
Don't Spread the Lead: A guide to lead-safe painting, repair, and home improvement for do-it-yourselfers
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) which requires companies performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 to have their company certified by EPA (or an EPA authorized state).
An RRP- certified contractor is someone who completes an EPA-approved training program focused on teaching proper and safe work practices when working with lead-based paint. Click here for more information.
For more information, read EPA's guide that describes why you should hire a lead-safe renovator

Stratford-Trumbull-Monroe Medical Reserve Corps
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a group of medical and non-medical volunteers organized to respond to public health emergencies in the three-town region. The MRC is a specialized component of Citizen Corps, a national network of volunteers dedicated to ensuring homeland security.
The MRC is focused on preparing for and responding to local public health emergencies such as disease outbreaks and natural or man-made disasters. Volunteers assist in public vaccination clinics and shelters opened in response to tropical and winter storms.
Although “medical” is in our name, membership is NOT limited to medical personnel. Whatever skills you bring, chances are we could use them in our MRC!
