National Poison Prevention Week is the third week in March (source: http://www.poisonprevention.org/index.htm). It’s a good time to check your home for any hazardous chemicals within reach of children.  Also, don’t forget about keeping your over the counter and prescription medications in a safe place! For more information about how to protect your household, call the Poison Helpline or see the United States Environmental Protection Agency website: http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/health/poisonprevention.htm
