PGFD Stations Support Take-Back Day - Prescriptions Meds Can Only be Accepted at Police Agencies

The Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department fully supports the efforts of National Take-Back Day and encourages citizens and residents to visit the closest law enforcement agency listed below to take advantage of this program. Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Stations are not authorized to accept your prescription meds.


On September 25, 2010, The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. Collection activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at sites established throughout the country. The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.

This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.

• The program is anonymous.

• Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted.

• Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.

• Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.

While some Fire/EMS Stations in the National Capital Region are participating in this effort, Fire/EMS Stations in Prince George’s County are not authorized to accept prescription medications. It is illegal for anyone other then a Law Enforcement official or authorized agency to accept surrendered prescription medications. The Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department fully supports this effort as the end result will ultimately have a positive impact on services we provide.

Citizens and residents wishing to participate in this program should visit one of the law enforcement agencies listed below to turn in their medications.
