Erie County Legislator Edward A. Rath, III is hosting a District Outreach Meeting during National Poison Prevention Week (March 18-24) in an effort to educate adults and children about the risks presented in their everyday lives. Legislator Rath’s Outreach will include educational information on poison prevention, where to get help in the event of a poisoning, and answers to frequently asked questions.
The Outreach will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, March 22 at the Clarence Library, 3 Town Place, Clarence.
“This year marks the 50th anniversary of National Poison Prevention Week and through my Outreach we are continuing the program’s efforts of prevention and education. During the past five decades the number of deaths by accidental poisoning have dropped dramatically but we must remain vigilant and educate ourselves on how to prevent tragedies in our homes,” Legislator Rath said.
