[ARCHIVED] Free Narcan Training

Bismarck Burleigh Public Health (BBPH) is proud to partner with Heartview to provide free Narcan training. The training will be held on September 20 at 6:30 p.m. at BBPH’s new building, 407 S. 26th St.


“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 because this training helps both value people’s lives and saves people’s lives,” said Heartview’s Opioid Treatment Program Case Manager Cathy Palczewski.


Participants will learn how to recognize an opioid overdose and how to properly administer Narcan. Each attendee will receive a free Narcan kit. You must register for the event by calling 701-355-1597 or going online to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/686627129227?aff=oddtdtcreator

Registration is limited. 

 

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,” said Susan Kahler, SAP Coordinator. BBPH receives funds from the State Opioid Response Grants to provide Narcan training and prescription drug take-back events. 

If you or your organization would like to attend or host a future Narcan training event, contact Heartview at 701-751-5797 for more information.
