June Talks on Tuesday



Methamphetamine lab seizures are on the rise in the nation's cities and suburbs, raising new concerns about a lethal drug that has long been the scourge of rural America. We see stories on the news everyday about meth labs, but what does a meth lab look like and why is it so dangerous? Meth lab contaminated homes can potentially pose significant dangers to homeowners, occupants, and visitors. The long-term health effects caused by the residual chemicals from the meth 'cooking' process are just now beginning to be understood. What can you do to protect yourself in the event you accidentally encounter a meth lab during a home visit? This webinar will provide home visitors with knowledge they can use to recognize the signs of a meth lab and what can be done to minimize the dangers posed therein.
