[ARCHIVED] LEGISLATOR FERRETTI TO HOST NARCAN TRAINING/OVERDOSE PREVENTION WORKSHOP

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Levittown Memorial Education Center - Auditorium

150 Abbey Ln., Levittown, NY 11756

 

You can save the life of a loved one from overdose!

 

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.


Legislator John R. Ferretti is sponsoring this event to help residents learn what to do in case of an overdose. Town of Hempstead Coucilman Anthony D’Esposito, a first responder, will be on hand to teach attendees 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.


Seating is limited and reservations are required  


To reserve your seat and free NARCAN kit, please contact Legislator Ferretti’s office:
