"Children Act Fast...So Do Poisons!"

Today is the start of National Poison Prevention Week (March 15-21, 2009). This is a great reminder of one of the components that is taught in our Disaster Preparedness Course. We teach L.I.E.S.- Limit, Isolate, Eliminate & Separate. When dealing with household cleaners, paint and other hazardous materials, you want to limit the amount you have on hand, isolate products that can come together and cause a bigger problem, eliminate the items you no longer need or use and separate away from children and animals that might ingest these potentially poisonous items.
