Upcoming Webinar: Don’t Run – Call 9-1-1: Overdose Prevention
Wed, March 14, 2018 @ 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)
While most overdoses occur in the presence of others, some people fear arrest and prosecution so they do not call 9-1-1 or seek medical services. However, Georgia’s 9-1-1 Medical Amnesty and Expanded Naloxone Access Law is exemplary as it protects people who overdose and callers seeking medical assistance at drug or alcohol overdose scenes. This training overviews the Georgia Law; explains how to recognize an overdose situation; and demonstrates how to administer naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal drug.
