If you are in Switzerland and have problems, call 145 and you will receive the necessary help. For 50 years, Tox Info Suisse has been providing its services daily and around the clock, on the emergency number 145.
StampNews.com is glad to inform that Swiss Post has unveiled a bright stamp that commemorates the 50th anniversary of Tox Info Suisse – the most reliable emergency service!
The majority of the 37,500 or so enquiries received each year from both private individuals and doctors involve drug poisoning. Often, the victims are young children who swallow tablets that are not kept out of reach of curious fingers.
However, Tox Info Suisse also deals daily with adult drug overdoses – often the result of an act of desperation.
