This week has been designated to raise awareness about the dangers of many products in the home that are poisonous and how to keep your family safe.


Over 2 million poisonings are reported each year with close to 90% of them happening in the home. It is well worth taking a few minutes to look around your home and do everything you can to prevent a poisoning. Here are some FAQ to help.


There is now a national phone number you can call if you have questions about a possible poisoning. 1-800-222-1222. This number can help you determine what to do. If someone is showing signs of illness always call 911.
