Working together to make homes safer
To meet a greater need for safe and convenient home storage for prescription and over-the counter medications, Prevent Coalition formed a 19-member stakeholder committee to incorporate a new phase under the Locks Save Lives initiative which is called Locks Save Lives Home.

What We Did
A series of resources have been created and can be used to build partnerships with residential builders, property managers and real estate professionals who agree to purchase and install a locking cabinet or drawer in each home they build, manage or sell. Partners are encouraged to download, print and disseminate educational and marketing materials to inform and promote safe medicine storage and disposal as well.
The committee met via Zoom from December 2020-August 2022. Stakeholder participation was voluntary and by invitation.
