This week's Safety Topic:

With Easter right around the corner when children will be eating a variety of candy, the Irving Fire Department wants everyone to teach children that MEDICATIONS are not CANDY. ***According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 60,000 young children end up in emergency departments every year because they got into medicines while their parent or caregiver was not looking.***

Please keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Teach your children what medicine/vitamins are and why you must be the one to give it to them.
  • NEVER tell children that medicine/vitamins are candy to get them to take it.
  • Put medicines and vitamins up and away – out of reach and out of sight.
  • Call your poison control center at (800) 222-1222 right away if you think your child might have gotten into a medicine or vitamin.

*Keep your medications out of reach of children so they do not get it confused with their Easter candy.*
