VIRTUAL/ONLINE NARCAN TRAINING (REVIVE!) -
TRAINING IS OPEN TO FAIRFAX COUNTY and CITIES OF FAIRFAX and FALLS CHURCH
Overdoses can happen in unexpected situations: a social gathering, a school event, with a friend or family, or other community event. You may not know that someone is at risk of overdose: stigma prevents many who use drugs from telling others. Do you know how to help someone who has overdosed on opioids?
The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board is offering a free
class that will provide the knowledge and confidence you need to potentially save a life during an opioid overdose emergency.
During this 60-minute virtual class, presented by a qualified instructor from the Wellness, Health Promotion & Prevention team, you will learn:
- How to recognize the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose.
- How to administer Narcan nasal spray to potentially reverse the effects of an
- opioid overdose.
- Other knowledge needed to fully respond to an opioid overdose emergency (what to do and not do).
In order to access the online class, you will need:
- A desktop, laptop, or tablet computer equipped with a camera, microphone, and speakers.
- Zoom video meetings conferencing software, downloaded for free.
Registration will be confirmed via an email, which will contain course log-in instructions for Zoom.
NOTE: Registration closes 1 hour before the session's scheduled starting time. Trainings are limited to Fairfax County and Cities of Falls Church residents only.
*Upon completion of the class, additional information will be available on how to obtain a kit while supplies are available.*
