[ARCHIVED] BBPH Free Narcan Training Sessions Scheduled for March 21

Community Narcan Training Flyer March 2023Bismarck Burleigh Public Health (BBPH) is offering a free Narcan training. The training will be held on March 21 at 6:30 p.m. located at BBPH (500 East Front St. Door A).

 

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) 355-1574 or going online to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/free-narcan-training-tickets-523846056657. 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.
