National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW)
National Poison Prevention Week runs March 17th - March 23rd, 2019. It was established in 1961 to call attention to the dangers of poisonings and how to prevent poisonings from occurring. Recent safety interventions, such as child resistant closures and poison prevention campaigns, have saved thousands of lives. In an effort to continue to raise awareness about poison prevention, the Utah Poison Control Center (UPCC) joins poison centers around the country to celebrate National Poison Prevention Week. Governor Gary R. Herbert signed a proclamation declaring this week as Poison Prevention Week in Utah.
The Utah Poison Control Center (UPCC) is a 24-hour resource for poison information and educational resources. We serve the state of Utah with immediate phone support in a poisoning crisis. The UPCC also serves health care professionals, pre-hospital providers, public health officials, and law enforcement. Our call center is staffed by certified, highly educated specialists to help you prevent poisonings and recover from poison related accidents.
