We must OWN the responsibility of:

- Keeping potentially dangerous products in their original protective packaging
- Storing these packages in safe places where children cannot accidentally access them
- Following the directions for proper use and dosage
- Knowing the phone number for the Poison Control Center or having it easily accessible if a something poisonous should be ingested
- Educating those we love about the dangers of poisons

-  Create your video that focuses on ANY of these messages, or one of your own that supports educating others about poison prevention.
