Summer Safety Quiz
School is out. Children and families are on the move. For many, summer is a favorite time of
year—but children are at greater risk of poisoning. Families travel; medicines are left within
reach; there are plants, critters, and chemicals in our yards. At the height of summer vacation
season, poison centers in the United States answer more than 6600 poison emergency calls per
day, a thousand more per day than in January.
