POISON CONTROL CENTERS

The U.S. poison emergency phone number is (800) 222-1222, and anyone who calls this number—24 hours a day, seven days a week—will be connected to a poison expert. Anyone experiencing a poison emergency or who has a question about a poison or about poison prevention should call right away. The U.S. nationwide poison control number is connected to a network of 62 poison centers around the United States, and callers are connected automatically to a local poison center expert in their area, selected according to the area code and exchange of the phone number from which the call originates.

Cell phone calls also will reach a poison center. Depending on the cell phone carrier, however, the caller might reach a poison center in their local area or in the "home" area of the cell phone company, but either poison center can help. Old numbers for local poison centers presently still work, but families should post and learn the new number.

Poison centers certified by the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) are printed in italics.

Poison control centers in Canada are also listed.
