Abstract
Environmental and medical survey to determine if a potential health hazard exists from lead exposure during firing, to evaluate existing environmental controls, and to conduct medical examinations of some police officers, at the Orlando, Florida Police Indoor Firing Range. All general area samples and personal air samples taken are found to exceed the existing standard of 0.2 milligram of lead per cubic meter of air. Biological sampling confirms that excessive atmospheric lead concentrations are present within the confines of the firing range. The Range Officer is indicated as experiencing a significant risk of developing overt lead intoxication. Recommendations are made to alleviate the existing conditions at the Range.
