Poison Control Information

If a poisoning occurs:

  1. Remain calm 
  2. Call 911 if the victim has collapsed or is not breathing. If the victim is awake and alert, call 1-800-222-1222.  Try to have this information ready:

    Victim’s age 
    Victim’s weight 
    Container/bottle of the poison 
    Time of poison exposure 
    Address where the poisoning occurred


  3. Stay on the phone and follow instructions from the emergency operator or poison control center 

When you reset your clocks, check your house too!
