Free Public Naloxone Training Sessions Scheduled

Project Bald Eagle, in collaboration with CleanSlate Centers of PA, will be offering three free public Naloxone training sessions in Williamsport on Thursday, June 29.

Naloxone is a drug used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose and has become a powerful tool in combating this epidemic. In 2014, Pennsylvania legislators passed Act 139 allowing law enforcement and regular citizens to obtain and administer this life-saving drug but many areas of Pennsylvania remain largely unaware, untrained and/or unequipped.

Each Naloxone Education and Training Session will be approximately 60 minutes in length and will cover:
  • An overview of the opioid epidemic
  • Act 139 of the PA Legislature
  • Naloxone administration to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose
Project Bald Eagle is leading coalition efforts in 10 counties of Pennsylvania to stem the tide of the opioid epidemic. Additional training details and more information on the organization can be found at www.ProjectBaldEagle.com.
