Store all household cleaners, detergents, medications, and gas in marked and locked containers out of reach of children and youth.

  • Know the danger

Teach children that are dangerous and can make a person very sick.

  • Keep away

Keep all poisonous products away from children. Children should not handle poisonous products.
