[ARCHIVED] BBPH Partnering with Heartview, NDSC to Provide Free Narcan Training Sessions in August, September

Community Narcan Training flyer August 2022Bismarck Burleigh Public Health (BBPH) is proud to partner with Heartview and North Dakota Safety Council (NDSC) to provide free Narcan training. The trainings will be held on August 8 at 6:30 p.m. and September 22 at 7 p.m. located at the NDSC Campus (1710 Canary Ave in Bismarck).  


“Training our community, and workplaces in the use of Narcan is an important life-saving solution. Safe communities are strong communities. The North Dakota Safety Council is happy to partner with BBPH and the Heartview Foundation because this training helps both value people’s lives and saves people’s lives," said NDSC Executive Director Chuck Clairmont.


Participants will learn how to recognize an opioid overdose, and how to properly administer Narcan. Each attendee will receive a free Narcan kit. You must register for the event by calling (701) 355-1594 or going online to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/free-narcan-training-tickets-390570225057. Registration is limited. 


Narcan is medication that temporarily restores breathing during an overdose from fentanyl or other opioids. “Our goal is to train the public on signs and symptoms of an overdose, the immediate actions they should take to get first responders to the scene and steps to stabilize and potentially revive an individual who has overdosed,” said Susan Kahler, SAP Coordinator. BBPH receives funds from the State Opioid Response Grants to provide Narcan training and prescription drug take back events. 


If you or your organization would like to attend or host a future Narcan training event, contact Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health at (701) 355-1594 for more information.
