Keep Medications out of Reach of Children


Children have little sense of what is safe and unsafe, especially when it comes to understanding the dangers of medicine, that is why it is important for medications to be stored secure and away from children. The Irving Fire Department reminds everyone to please KEEP YOUR MEDICATIONS IN A SECURE PLACE AND OUT OF REACH FROM CHILDREN.

Please keep these simple safety tips in mind when dealing with medications and children:

  • Store medicine in a locked cabinet.
  • Use child-resistant caps for added security.
  • Keep medicine in its original container.
  • If you get called to the phone or front door while you’re administering medicine to yourself or your child, don’t leave the container behind where your child could get a hold of it.
  • Keep the poison control center number handy and in your phone: 1-800-222-1222
  • Carefully discard of unused medicine. Click here to learn more about throwing out unused medicine.
