Future Lead Testing Station Events Will Be Posted Here


What to Expect at Lead Testing Station Events

Even a little lead in a child’s blood can hurt their ability to learn, pay attention, and do well in school. We are here to help the entire community (property owners, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties, and more) keep keiki away from lead. You can give them a huge boost in school and for the rest of the lives by learning more and taking a few simple steps today.

The DOH Lead Testing Station is a FREE way to help keep our keiki away from lead.

Test things from your home, school, or business. Test anything you think a young child might touch or play with. Talk to experts and get instant results. We will have free Leo the Little Lion coloring books, board books, and colorful flyers with lots of pictures.

What Should I Bring and How Does It Work?

The machine that we use cannot test through glass or thick plastic. Instead, please bring things like old toys, souvenirs, jewelry, dishes, or antiques in a plastic ziploc bag with your name on it.

Remember, always wash hands with soap and water if anyone touches something you think might have lead in it.
