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.

Do you know what poison dangers to look out for during the summer months? Test your summer safety poison IQ with the quiz developed by the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
