April 28, 2019 - Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Although you may not realize it, the medication that gets into our water systems affects our environment and also us.

Are you smart about drug disposal?  Take this quiz to see.  Also, check out the FDA's site on the impact medicines have on the environment and what you can do about it.

The best thing we all can do is to decrease the amount of medication we release into the environment. Go to takebackday.dea.gov to see what you can do to minimize the medication you release into the environment.  Many local police departments and some pharmacies will take your unused medication on April 27.  Additionally, there are DEA - registered locations that will take back unused medication regardless of the day.

Let's keep our valuable resource a viable resource.

 

 

Time to Prepare

According to the National Weather Service in 2017 there were 126 flood fatalities and $60 billion in damages.  Since winter has ended and spring has begun, flooding becomes an increased concern.  In Virginia, we have seen the destructive effects of flooding.  Check out the links for documents from FEMA concerning flood preparation.  Let's prepare and promote safety before, during, and after floods.
