A board-certified physician toxicologist is available at all times for specialized consultations from medical facilities seeking expert, current information in managing poison exposures.

In addition to providing access to poison experts, the CPCS is a central communication system infrastructure that can handle thousands of calls a day, providing real-time surveillance and identification of critical public health threats and rapid, reliable help during major public health events.

The CPCS has four sites of operation including UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, San Francisco General Hospital in San Francisco, Children's Hospital Central California in Fresno and the UC San Diego Medical Center in San Diego. The central office is located at the UC San Francisco Laurel Heights Campus in San Francisco. The CPCS is responsible to the California Emergency Medical Services Authority and administered by the University of California San Francisco School of Pharmacy, Department of Clinical Pharmacy.
