***According to the National Center for Health Statistics, there are about 31 million emergency department visits for unintentional injuries in the U.S. These injuries result in over 130,000 deaths per year -- many resulting from the kinds of activities conducted while spring cleaning.***

  • Did you spring the clock forward? When doing so, did you make sure you also change the batteries in your smoke detectors?
  • Remember to use a ladder to reach the top shelf and do not go above the safe standing level.
  • March 17-23 is National Poison Prevention Week
    • Always follow the safety instructions when using harsh cleaning products and wear gloves and masks as instructed.
    • Read the labels of the cleaning products you use. Look for the words "Caution", "Warning", "Danger", "Poison", or "Keep out of Reach of Children". Lock these products up after you are finished using them to prevent poisonings.
    • Keep the poison control center number handy and in your phone: 1-800-222-1222 or go to PoisonHelp.org
