The American Association of Poison Control Centers (PCCs) has a nationwide toll-free number for contacting regional poison centers. To be automatically connected to a local poison center, call 800/222-1222. EMS providers should follow local protocols to determine how to contact PCCs, either directly or through on-line medical control. Most experts agree that PCCs are a reliable and current source of information on the assessment and treatment of poisoning emergencies.
