County Executive Steve Bellone and Dr. James Tomarken, Commissioner of Health, encourage residents to take advantage of free Opioid Overdose Prevention Program - Narcan Training Classes.

The training, which meets New York State Department of Health requirements, will enable participants to recognize an opioid overdose, administer intranasal Narcan and take additional steps until EMS arrives. Participants will receive a certificate of completion and an emergency resuscitation kit that includes nasal Narcan.

“Our goal is to distribute overdose kits to as many individuals as possible so that they can assist our EMS system in saving lives and strengthening the community’s chain of survival,” said Dr. Tomarken.
