Advice for parents of small children
Talk to your children about what discarded needles look like.
Emphasize to your children that if they find a discarded needle, they should not touch it because they can get hurt.
Make sure your children know that if they find a needle, they should leave it where it is and ask an adult for help.
Ensure small children are wearing shoes if they are playing in areas around spray parks.
