Poison prevention week

Next week is poison prevention week.

The North Dakota Department of Health wants everyone to know poison prevention doesn't only apply to children, adults need to be on the lookout as well.

Mandy Slag of the Injury Prevention program reminds you to keep your medicine up and out of sight, and locked.

“Keep medications in their original containers, and also other products such as cleaning supplies and bleach,” said Slag.

Slag says you should program the prevention hotline number into your phone: 800-222-1222.

No matter where you are, the number will direct you to the nearest poison expert.
