Sheriff Issues Autumn Safety Tips

Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith is asking residents and visitors to take precautionary measures while enjoying the autumn season in Putnam County.

The fall season attracts many people to see the fall foliage in Putnam County. Many use the Putnam County Rail Trail, while others hike on the trails of Breakneck Mountain and Fahnstock State Park. Indeed, this time of year offers beautiful places to ride a bicycle, walk or jog. However, those participating in outdoor activities are urged to use safety precautions when preparing for such leisurely pursuits.

Putnam County Medication Take Back Day Scheduled for November

The Putnam Communities That Care Coalition, in collaboration with the Putnam County Health Department and Putnam County Sheriff’s Department, will be holding a Fall Medication Take Back Event at Putnam Hospital Center.

To help combat this growing threat to our nation’s children, Putnam Hospital Center will host the event on Saturday, November 7, 2015. The disposal hours are between 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Please enter through the PHC Cancer Pavilion entrance. Signage will be posted leading to the disposal area. Individuals can dispose of prescription medication, over the counter medication, and pet medication. Syringes will NOT be accepted. Please keep all medications in their original packaging and remove personal patient information.

Why should I participate in Medication Take Back Day?

The answer is pretty simple – it’s safe, good for the environment and can save lives.

By bringing in your expired or unwanted medications to a take back day, you insure that it will be disposed of in a safe manner. Members of the Sheriff’s Department will be present to secure and dispose of the medications according to the law. By doing so, you also insure that there are no “accidental” poisonings/overdoses by leaving unwanted prescriptions in your home.
