FREE NARCAN Training at our Bismarck NDSC Safety Campus
We are proud to partner with Bismarck Burleigh Public Health (BBPH) and Heartview Foundation to provide FREE Narcan training. The training will be held on January 18th at 6:30pm at our Bismarck NDSC Safety Campus. Participants will learn how to recognize an opioid overdose, and how to properly administer Narcan. Each attendee will receive a free Narcan kit. Registration is limited, so register early.
“Training our community, and workplaces in the use of Narcan is an important life-saving solution. Safe communities are strong communities. Heartview Foundation is happy to partner with BBPH and the North Dakota Safety Council because this training helps both value people’s lives and saves people’s lives,”
Cathy PalczewskiOpioid Treatment Program Case Manager
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.” BBPH receives funds from the State Opioid Response Grants to provide Narcan training and prescription drug take back events.
