DEA Drug Take Back Day, October 27th

Happy Fall!

From the International Balloon Fiesta to the changing color of foliage, fall is absolutely beautiful in New Mexico! While New Mexicans and travelers abroad enjoy the fall in our great state, the NMPDIC would like to remind folks that it is also flu and carbon monoxide poisoning season.

Get your flu shots and avoid taking medications with the same active ingredient, such as acetaminophen. Install carbon monoxide detectors in your homes and outside of sleeping areas, and remember to not run generators in the home, recreational vehicles or tents.

Learn more prevention tips by clicking on the following links:  Medication Safety and Carbon Monoxide Safety.
