Free Community Trainings in Opioid Overdose Recognition & Use of Naloxone for Reversal

Training Information 

On a regular basis, ECDOH provides training to Erie County residents on how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. This training includes how to use the aerosol version of naloxone (Narcan) to reverse the overdose.

  • There is NO COST to attend this training. Participants must be at least 16 years old.
  • Naloxone is a benign drug. If it is administered when an individual is not experiencing an opioid overdose, no harm will come to the patient.
  • A kit containing naloxone will be given to each attendee who completes the training. Once an individual uses these doses, they must submit the Naloxone Training and Overdose Reporting Form in order to receive a replacement naloxone kit. 
  • Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to recognize the signs & symptoms of an opioid overdose, administer naloxone (Narcan) properly and take necessary follow-up steps.
