webPOISONCONTROL: Poison Control Guidance Online

Many of us know that Poison Control services are available by phone at 1-800-222-1222. Not so many know you can also get help ONLINE. For those of you who don't want to, or can't call; prefer an online option; don't want to frighten those who are listening nearby; feel embarrassed by calling (you should not be embarrassed - we don't judge!); or simply want to try it out, use our webPOISONCONTROL® tool.
