Poison Control Tips

According to the American Association of Poison Control centers, millions of people are unintentionally poisoned every year and children under age six are at the greatest risk. As a leading provider of home security systems, and an advocate for life safety, we wanted to do something to reduce this alarming statistic.

Here are some things to remember:

  • Store all medicines and household products in the original containers.
  • Use child-resistant packages for medicines and potentially dangerous household products.
  • Lock medicines and products out of sight and reach of children.
  • Follow product label warnings about not mixing different products, ventilating the area, or wearing gloves.
