Responding to Opioid Overdose – Free NARCAN Training Offered

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) “On average, 130 American’s die every day from an opioid overdose.”

On Thursday November 14th from 6:00-7:30pm, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County will be hosting a free New York State OASAS naloxone training program. Naloxone (NARCAN) is a medication used to block or reverse the effects of opioids. This medication is often given when there is a suspected opioid overdose, and with proper training has the potential to save human life. Participants will learn how and where to obtain free or low-cost Naloxone, to recognize the signs of overdose, and how to properly administer Naloxone.  While this training is tailored to first-responders, we welcome anyone who feels they could benefit from attending. The location of the training is at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County building in the Ag Education Center located at 100 Eaton Street, Morrisville, NY 13408. Registration is encouraged (but not required) to ensure adequate supplies.
