This series is designed to inform and educate the community on the dangers of drug overdose, the importance of prevention, as well as demonstrate the proper use of NARCAN and other life saving techniques.

Each pop-up event will be held in various neighborhoods within the county with a table set up of free NARCAN and other materials to distribute to the community.
