FORT HOOD, Texas — Fort Hood leadership will host two town halls at 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sept. 11 in the Howze Auditorium, here, to discuss lead-based paint usage in pre-1978 housing units on the installation.

As a result of nation-wide interest at all Army installations stemming from a recent article written about lead-based paint, this proactive measure is being taken by the post’s leadership to provide information on inspection protocol, maintenance procedures and medical facts. Maintenance and medical subject matter experts will be on hand to answer any questions after each town hall session.

Only the 6 p.m. event will be available for media to attend. Media who wish to cover this event should register by calling the Public Affairs office at 254-449-5298 no later than noon Sept. 10.

On Sept. 11, media will meet public affairs at the south side parking lot of the visitors’ center at 5:15 p.m.
