NARCAN TRAINING COMMUNITY FORUM

  


YOU CAN SAVE A LOVED ONE FROM OVERDOSE! 


THURSDAY, AUGUST 23RD  7:00 PM to 9:00 PM 

Central Synagogue – Beth Emeth – 430 DeMott Ave., Rockville Centre 


Every day, at least one Long Islander dies from an opiate overdose. And those are only the ones we know of – the ones directly caused by heroin or prescription painkillers such as Percoset or Oxycodone.  If you don’t think it can happen to someone you care about, please think again.  Overdoses can happen to anyone.  

Nassau County Legislator Howard J. Kopel is sponsoring this event to help residents learn what to do in case of an overdose and to teach them how to administer the life-saving, overdose-reversal agent called Naloxone, or “NARCAN.”  NARCAN is the antidote to an opioid overdose and all attendees will receive a free kit.  If you have an expired NARCAN kit from a previous training, bring it and we’ll give you a new one. 


SEATING IS LIMITED AND RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED 


To reserve your seat and free NARCAN Overdose Prevention Kit please contact Legislator Kopel’s office at:  

Phone: 516-571-6207  or  email: hkopel@nassaucountyny.gov
