Chief Norton of the Chilmark Fire Department, and the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (PAARI) are pleased to invite you to join them for a NARCAN training and discussion about what first responders, public safety agencies, and town staff can do in response to the mounting opioid epidemic.
This training will provide education on how to identify and respond to an opioid overdose, including how to administer NARCAN, the opioid overdose reversal medication.
There will also be an opportunity to learn about and discuss various law enforcement and public safety initiatives to connect opioid drug users to treatment.
We hope this meeting will foster dialogue across agencies and municipalities about how to address the opioid epidemic and prevent fatal overdoses.
