You Can Save A Life! Learn to use Narcan


We are offering you an opportunity to be trained 
to administer the lifesaving drug, Narcan (Naloxone).
Narcan is a medication used to reverse opioid overdoses. 
It is easily administered by a trained person. 

Training to be provided by:

Mandee Nann

Narcan is a medication designed to reverse opioid overdose rapidly. It is an opioid antagonist, meaning that it binds to opioid receptors in the brain and can change and block the effects of other opioids. It can quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped due to overdosing with an opioid such as heroin or prescription medications.

The training is virtual, takes approximately two hours and is open to anyone and everyone. There is no charge to participants. 

Do Not Miss This Opportunity. 

All participants will be issued a Narcan kit containing the drug.
