The Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association (BSBPA), along with the Saratoga County Department of Health, is proud to announce its upcoming Narcan Training event scheduled for Monday, June 19. This training session aims to equip the community with life-saving skills and knowledge to combat opioid overdoses effectively.
The event will take place from 5:30-7:30 on the lawn of Brookside Museum, located at 21 Fairground Avenue in Ballston Spa. Admission is free to all members of the public who wish to participate. Participants will receive valuable instruction on recognizing signs of an opioid overdose and administering naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, an FDA-approved medication that can reverse the effects of an overdose. Narcan kits will be given away, and each training session lasts about 10 minutes.
“We recognize the urgency of addressing the opioid crisis and our association is committed to playing an active role in raising awareness and providing resources to the community,” said Liz Biddle, Treasurer of the BSBPA. “We encourage everyone in the area to attend and join us in making a positive impact.”
This training is presented by the BSBPA, the Saratoga County Sheriffs Office, Saratoga County Department of Health, Saratoga County Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services, the Village of Ballston Spa, and the Brookside Museum.
