Saving lives starts at home
Home – a safe and secure place!
Locking up medications benefits everyone’s health and well-being and can save lives just like helmets and seatbelts. In fact, the single most effective way to prevent accidental poisonings overdoses, and misuse from prescription and over-the-counter medications is investing in a locking cabinet, drawer or lockbox to store them safely at home. For the sake of your children, your neighbor’s children, and all your loved one, keep medication locked and stored away.
Together, we can keep our loved ones safe and save lives by establishing a standard for safe and secure home storage for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
