Poison control centers are open 24/7 every day, including holidays, for questions or emergencies regarding poisons. One national number, 1-800-222-1222, will connect you to your local poison center. We encourage everyone to program this number into cell phones and keep it visible in the home and workplace. You can also get expert help from the online tool, PoisonHelp.org.
