EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION
Be prepared in case of an emergency.
Save the Poison Help number (800-222-1222) in your phones, so you have it when you need it – and make sure that babysitters, older children, grandparents, and frequent family visitors have this information too, in case there’s an emergency when they’re in charge.
Call Poison Help right away if you think your child might have gotten into a medicine or vitamin, even if you are not completely sure. You can also visit https://www.poisonhelp.org/.
The Up and Away Campaign
Families take medicines and vitamins to feel well or stay well. Any medicine or vitamin can be dangerous if taken in the wrong way or by the wrong person, even medicine you buy without a prescription (known as over-the-counter medicines). Up and Away and Out of Sight is an educational program to remind families about the importance of safe medicine storage. It is an initiative of PROTECT, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Consumer Healthcare Products Association Educational Foundation and the below organizations.
