National Poison Prevention Week

It's National Poison Prevention Week!
59 years ago, in an effort to raise awareness, promote poison prevention, and reduce unintentional poisonings, Congress established National Poison Prevention Week. During the third week in March annually, communities across America have come together to work with the National Poison Prevention Week Council to highlight the dangers of various types of poisonings for people of all ages.
Each year, the council holds children's artwork contest and helps organize various other activities.
At Outdoor Joe's we understand the pain and danger that can result from exposure to various poisons (especially plants). This is why we've created many resources to aide in common issues related to poison ivy, such as:
- Our Poison Ivy Picture Gallery to assist in identifying the differences between poison ivy and look-alikes
- A list of Poison Ivy Removal Services
- The Official Outdoor Joe's Poison Ivy Facts and FAQ
- The Poison Ivy Treatment and Resources Library
"If someone touches one of these plants, rinse right away with running water for at least five minutes. Poison center experts may not be able to identify other plants on the phone, so it is important before a poisoning occurs to learn the names of plants around your home. Call Poison Help (1-800-222-1222), which connects you to your local poison center, to find out more information." - HRSA.Gov
