We need your help to stay prepared!

Tax deductible
We need your help to stay prepared! The Washington Poison Center is seeking your help to replace our aging generator. Your donation will support the cost of a new propane generator, a new cement pad, safety enclosure, and labor/installation.

Having a backup generator is crucial to ensure we are here 24/7 for Washington residents. This is especially important since our office building is in Seattle, which has frequent power outages from windstorms.

We have relied on a 17-year-old residential propane generator located outside our building. In the last year, however, we’ve detected errors with this generator. A new, commercially-rated generator will ensure we are always able to answer our phones.

Who will your donation help?
YOU! If you ever need medical advice with a potential poisoning, medication mistake, or question about a harmful substance.

Your friends, family, and community:
- Last year, we managed 115,376 phone calls and helped 60,826 patients—that’s over 316 calls and 166 patients per day.
- Most calls were about a potential poisoning. Over 6,000 individuals, however, called to ask us questions, such as safety considerations with their medications.
- 40% of our patients were children younger than 6 years. We treated most of these little ones at home, so they (and their families) avoided the stress and expense of visiting the emergency room.
- 13% of our patients intentionally poisoned themselves for suicide/self-harm reasons. We helped treat their medical needs and connect them with mental health resources.

Please help us always be here, ready to help.
