National Poison Prevention Week 2021


Save the date! National Poison Prevention Week will be here sooner than you know! Join us on Facebook and Instagram for safety tips on March 21-27, 2021, or follow the hashtag #NPPW21 on social media. 


When life happens, poison centers are ready 24/7/365 with fast, free treatment advice by calling Poison Help (1-800-222-1222) or visiting poisonhelp.org. Whether it's a question or an emergency, Poison Help can provide life-saving information when people need it most and it is faster and more accurate than an internet search. On average, 90% of poisonings happen in American homes each year and more than 70% of people who call Poison Help get the help they need right where they are - saving the cost of a trip to a doctor or hospital. 

This year National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW) is March 21-27, 2021. NPPW is a week dedicated to raising awareness about poison control centers and the Poison Help Hotline (1-800-222-1222). We welcome you to join us in celebrating the valuable services provided by the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center and other poison control centers across the nation!
