Cough and cold medications
Before dressing wounds or treating others, wash your hands for 15-20 seconds to prevent infection — about the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice! Rinse hands thoroughly and dry using paper towels.
And Don’t Forget…

for year-round application before outdoor activity, especially during peak sun (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) Sunscreen has a shelf life! Replace bottles that are past their expiration date or are more than two years old.

Store Medications Safely
Use a plastic box, bag, backpack or other container to hold your supplies
add an index card
with phone numbers for poison control, emergency contacts and the
Giant Eagle pharmacy
Even if your numbers are programmed into your phone, paper copies will come in handy if your phone (or your home) loses power.
Keep all medications in a dry, room-temperature area out of the reach of children; check expiration dates on all medications. Expired or improperly stored medication breaks down over time, making it ineffective — it may even make you sick!
