Poison Prevention With Ocala Fire Rescue

National Poison Prevention Week is March 18-24. Sometimes the most common household items—like medications, soaps or detergents—can become poisonous in a matter of seconds. Each year, more than 2 million poisonings are reported, with 90 percent occurring at home. Luckily, the Health Resource and Services Administration’s Poison Help Line, (888) 222-1222, provides free and confidential guidance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

As we recognize National Poison Prevention Week, Ocala Fire Rescue encourages you to be a champion of poison prevention. Save and share the Poison Help Line’s number with your friends and loved ones. When in doubt, don’t guess. Make the call. For more information, visit ocalafire.org or call (352) 629-8306.
