Don't Wait

Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you think someone has been poisoned, call us at 1-800-222-1222 right away. Do not wait for the victim to look or feel sick. Do not try to treat the person yourself.


National Poison Prevention Week is March 15-21, 2015 and the Texas Poison Center Network is again sponsoring the Poison Prevention Poster Contest. While providing a valuable learning experience, the poster contest can also offer students the opportunity to educate the public about poison prevention as well as win exciting prizes! Each entry will compete for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. The winning poster will advance to our state contest to compete for the grand prize. Winning posters will be sent to Washington, D.C. for consideration as the National Poison Prevention Week Poster for next year.
