All readers are encouraged to do further research for all applicable restrictions and guidelines. Important information concerning unintentional poisoning hazards and mitigations: Unintentional poisoning is one of the leading causes of injury to children. Poisoning is a pre- ventable injury. Yet each year thousands of children in the United States are treated in emer- gency rooms after consuming poisonous substances. "New and reemerging hazards, such as button cell batteries and chemicals that look like everyday drinks, are cause for increased con-cern for the welfare of children.Three key steps to prevent unintentional poisonings:1.) Keep medicines and household chemicals in their original, child-resistant containers and never remove originallabels2.) Store potentially hazardous substances up and out of a childs sight and reach; and3.) Keep the national Poison Help hotline number, 800-222-1222, handy in case of a poison emergency. Additional poison prevention steps are:1.) When hazardous products are in use, never let young children out of your sight, even if you must take themalong when answering the phone or doorbell;2.) Always leave the light on when giving or taking medicine so that you can see what you are giving or taking.Check the dosage every time;3.) Avoid taking medicine in front of children. Refer to medicine as "medicine," not "candy;”4.) Clean out the medicine cabinet periodically and safely dispose of unneeded and outdated medicines;5.) Do not put decorative lamps and candles that contain lamp oil where children can reach them. Lamp oil can bevery toxic if ingested by children;6.) Do not allow children to play with button cell batteries, and keep button batteries out of your childs reach and ifpossible avoid toys that contain button batteries7.) If a button cell battery is ingested, immediately seek medical attention.The National Battery Ingestion Hotline is available anytime at (202) 625-3333 (call collect if necessary), or call thePoison Help hotline at (800) 222-1222. Call the Command Safety office at 772-0310 if you have any questions orconcerns. Look for TF Knighthawk Government Organization
