Poison Prevention

The Health Promotions Injury Prevention Coordinator is available to speak to pre-K groups, day cares, and senior centers on poison prevention tips.
Every year a needless number of accidents occur involving poisons found in the home. Common household cleaning products as well as insecticides and other chemicals can be harmful and in some instances deadly to children and pets. With proper awareness and careful storage, we can prevent accidents involving poison every day.

The Maryland Poison Center is the first place to call in the event of a suspected poisoning. They are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide callers with safe effective emergency treatment advice and answer any non-urgent questions you may have about poisons.

The Maryland Poison Center:
