May 2020 MTAC Public Service Announcement for Secure and Monitor Prescription Drugs
With COVID-19 keeping us home, it’s more important than ever to secure and monitor prescription drugs in your house. Massapequa Takes Action Coalition and Nassau Country Police Department recommend that you:
- Secure medication by hiding or locking it up – don’t keep it in a medicine cabinet.
- Monitor quantities, dosages and refills of all drugs and take inventory regularly.
- Discuss the dangers of misusing prescription and over-the-counter drugs with your family.
Protect our future.
