Narcan Training Mountain Top Library

Get Trained. Carry Narcan. Save A Life.

If every home and business is equipped with Narcan as part of their standard first aid kit, it increases the chances this life saving medication can be administered in an emergency. If you or someone you know actively uses opioids such as Oxycodone/OxyContin, Hydrocodone/Vicodin, Fentanyl, Heroin, Morphine, or Methadone, we encourage you to keep Narcan with you.

The Mountain Top Library in Tannersville, in partnership with MCC, is offering a FREE PUBLIC NARCAN TRAINING on Tuesday November 14th at 6:30pm. This training will be less than 1 hour.

Naloxone (Narcan) swiftly counters opioid overdose.

Binding to brain receptors, Narcan restores normal respiration when breathing slows or ceases from opioid misuse.

Xylazine & Fentanyl Test Strips

The presence of xylazine mixed with cocaine, heroin and fentanyl is becoming more common. Narcan should still be used in any suspected overdose. Xylazine impacts breathing and the effects of it may still occur even after Narcan takes effect. Rescue breaths may be helpful while waiting for emergency services to arrive.

If you are engaging with use of substances, it is highly encouraged to get test strips to analyze your supply.
