  Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services such as water, gas, electricity or telephones were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Therefore, the best way to make your family and your home safer is to be prepared before disaster strikes.

Pesticide Poisoning - Symptoms & First Aid

 
 
Press blue button for the most current information on poison treatments


Symptoms of Pesticide Poisoning
Everyone who works with pesticides should have a well thought out plan of action to follow in the event of an accident. It should include basic knowledge of first aid as it relates to pesticide poisoning and a prepared kit.

Call a Doctor or a Poison Control Center
First aid is the initial effort to help a victim while medical help is on the way. Step one in any poisoning emergency is to call an ambulance or doctor. The only exception is when you are all alone with the victim. Then you must see that he is breathing, and out of further exposure to the pesticide before leaving him to make a phone call. Always save the pesticide and the label for the doctor.

Poison on the Skin
The sooner the poison is washed off the patient, the less the injury.

  • Remove clothing and drench skin with water (shower, hose, faucet, pond, ditch).

  • Cleanse skin and hair thoroughly with soap and water. (Don't abrade or injure the skin while washing.)
  • Dry and wrap in a blanket.

    Do not allow any of the pesticide to get on you while you are helping the victim.


    Chemical Burns of the Skin
  • Remove contaminated clothing.

  • Wash the skin with large quantities of cold running water.

  • Immediately cover loosely with a clean, soft cloth.

  • Avoid use of ointments, greases, powders, and other drugs in the first aid treatment of chemical burns.

    Poison in the Eye
    It is very important to wash the eye as quickly, but as gently, as possible.

  • Hold eyelids open, wash eyes with a gentle stream of clean running water at body temperature.

  • Continue washing for 15 minutes or more.

  • Do not use chemicals or drugs in wash water. They may increase the extent of injury.
