March 11, 2009

Now you know

Poison Prevention Week is March 15 - 21. The U.S. Congress established National Poison Prevention Week on September 16, 1961. Shortly thereafter, the Poison Prevention Week Council was organized to coordinate this annual event and promote poison prevention.

National Poison Prevention Week, the third week in March each year, is a week nationally designated to highlight the dangers of poisonings and how to prevent them.

Poison Prevention Kits from the Wisconsin Poison Center are available through UWRF Risk Management.  Kits include a brochure entitled "Protect Your Family from Poisons", a magnet with the Poison Center Hotline Number, Mr. Yuk stickers, and a list of toxic plants.  E-mail constance.smith@uwrf.edu or call ext. 3344 to receive your kit. 

Poison prevention is also highlighted in the March UWRF Risk Management Newsletter found at http://www.uwrf.edu/risk/newsletters.htm
