The Greater Boroughs Partnership for Health are providing another session to train the public on how to use Narcan, plus the necessary supplies.
The life-saving training session at the Southborough Library will only take a half hour.
An event flyer promotes:
Nearly 40% of overdose deaths occur while a bystander is present. Narcan access for bystanders can help save lives.
Pre-registration is required to participate (here) since space is limited. The event will be held at the Southborough Library this Tuesday, May 30th from 4:00 – 4:30 pm..
Narcan is the brand name of the generic naloxone and is a life-saving medication that can reverse an overdose from opioids – including heroin, fentanyl, and prescription medications – when given in time.
