Battling the Opioid Epidemic - Narcan Education

Thursday, March 29 at 6 pm - Warner Library Meeting Room B -- REGISTRATION CLOSED, CLASS IS FULL

Would you know what to do if someone overdosed? The Westchester County Health Department  offers FREE life-saving Naloxone (Narcan) training for residents. When administered correctly, the nasal spray Narcan restores breathing that has been dangerously slowed by an overdose of heroin or prescription painkillers. Narcan works within a minute or two and gives emergency responders time to get the person to a hospital. Residents who participate in the free trainings learn how to administer Narcan, and are given a free Narcan kit. Residents 18 years of age or older who want to be trained to administer Narcan should register online for the training dates listed below. Register early as space is limited.
