About the Event
“Fentanyl is the single deadliest drug threat our nation has ever encountered,” said DEA Administrator Anne Milgram. “Fentanyl is everywhere. From large metropolitan areas to rural America, no community is safe from this poison. We must take every opportunity to spread the word to prevent fentanyl-related overdose death and poisonings from claiming scores of American lives every day.”
The Foundation continues to hear about more and more concerns about inspectors and officers coming across and being exposed to fentanyl and other narcotics. CEOSF is also hearing about agencies that are now providing Narcan to their field staff. Whether you are a Code Enforcement Officer, Building Inspector, Fire Inspector, Housing Inspector, or any other government employee; this training is for you! With the rise of fentanyl contamination and exposure, it is worth your time to attend this training. This officer safety class is focused on providing an overview of the following topics:
- Opioids to include heroin, morphine, fentanyl, 3methal fentanyl, carfentanyl
- Brief History
- Narcan - Pharmacology/pharmacokinetics, Use, National Protocols
- Case Studies
- Looking into the future (what drugs will follow, what to look out for, what is changing)
