Today brings to a close the 50th anniversary of Poison Prevention Week. The goal of the week? To prevent unintentional poisonings in your home and community. Sounds good to us. Most helpful of all is the phone service that can help you in case of an emergency. If an accident happens with chemicals, medicine, or household items, you can call 1-800-222-1222 and get help right away from a local poison expert. Of course, if someone is unconscious or has trouble breathing, call 911.
