1-916-651-4040 is the number for our representative. I dont know if this is going on everywhere but locoal poison control is going to be cut out of the southern california budget. I know they are taking away a few programs. But poison control is so nice to have it saves ppl from ER long waits when nothing might be wrong at all. So please ladies if you could call and speak up for us to keep this local poison control service that would be a God send. That God I have never had to use it but a friend of mine uses it at least once a month and this has helped her so much.

  • I have called several times as well. I like having it around. But I guess in worst case scenarios I would call my childs pediatrician.
