This week is National Poison Prevention Week

*Experts recommend storing all medicines and other toxic products up high, out of sight and locked up, just so little ones don’t accidentally get into them.

*Also, dispose of unwanted medications and other hazardous products properly.
If you suspect someone has ingested something poisonous,  call the Poison Help Hotline at 800-222-1222 (available 24-7)
