Happy Fall!

The NMPDIC wants to help keep everyone well and safe so that they are able to enjoy every minute of this magical season in New Mexico! Below are a few things to be aware of:

  • No one wants to be down with the flu! Make sure you and your family get seasonal flu shots. Practice medication safety and avoid taking medications with the same active ingredient, such as acetaminophen.
  • Make sure you protect your family by installing carbon monoxide detectors in your homes and outside of sleeping areas. Remember to NEVER run generators in the home, garages or recreational vehicles, even if the doors and windows are open.
    • Is it the flu or carbon monoxide poisoning? The flu and carbon monoxide poisoning have very similar symptoms, except carbon monoxide poisoning does not typically produce a fever.
  • If you think that you or someone you know may have been poisoned, please contact the NMPDIC right away:  1-800-222-1222!
