NNEPC Sets Up Central Location for Information on NH Funding Crisis

The NNEPC established a webpage- www.nnepc.org/new-hampshire-funding-crisis to give concerned NH residents a place to go to get the latest information on the situation.

If nothing changes, in 51 days poison center services will be shut off for those calling from the State of New Hampshire. After July 1st there will be no answer on the 1-800-222-1222 hotline for calls placed from New Hampshire. The State of New Hampshire has told the NNEPC they are as yet unable to financially support services. The NNEPC is working closely with state leaders to find funds, but nothing has been secured at this time.

What can you do to help?

1-Call the Governor’s office and let them know that you are concerned about the Poison Center and that you want to know what is happening to make sure you don’t lose poison center services.
