Kansasville Fire Narcan Class
August 26 @ 1:00 PM - 9:00 PM
In effort to promote enhanced public safety and heighten the awareness to the challenges of addiction, the Kansasville Fire & Rescue Department is pleased to host this informative training for the community.
These 3-hour training sessions are open to all adults who want to learn more about addiction and desire the skills and abilities to be better able to respond.
Attendees often include families, friends, caregivers, clergy, law enforcement, first responders, healthcare providers, employers, educators, community-based service providers, and anyone interested in learning how to respond to substance use/co-occurring disorders.
Like CPR, the course is designed to build the skills to support and respond to someone who needs help, including the use of Narcan (Naloxone) in an emergency overdose situation. The training will also help participants navigate the resources available in the community.
Participants will learn:
· How to identify the signs and symptoms of addiction;
· How to help an individual in need of support;
· The effects of stigma on individuals and families;
· How to set healthy boundaries and principles of self-care; and
. How to safely and effectively use Narcan in an overdose situation.
Training will take place at the Kansasville Fire Station, 23730 Durand Ave, Kansasville, WI. Please call (262) 886-6688 with any questions.
Session 1: 1 p.m.— 4 p.m.
