What can you do to help make your home safe from accidental poisoning? In conjunction with Poison Prevention Week, held every 3rd week in March, here are 3 tips to help make your home safe from accidental poisonings.

  1. Never mix household or chemical products together. When you do, you risk the chance of creating a dangerous gas.

  2. Never share prescription medicines. If you are taking more than 1 prescription medicine at the same time, be sure to check with your doctor about any dangerous drug interactions. When in doubt, always call the toll free Poison Help Line at 1-800-222-1222  that connects you to your local poison center.

  3. Keep all household cleaners, chemical and medicines locked and out of the reach of children.
