Kickstand will be hosting a naloxone training night for volunteers and community members. This event will be faciliated by Karmik!
Naloxone is a drug which blocks the effects of opiates/opioids, such as fentanyl. Opioids are being found in a wide range of drugs. If you are a drug user, know a drug user, or frequently come into contact with drug users (including cocaine, MDMA, heroin etc. users), it is recommended that you have a naloxone kit on you, and receive the training necessary to use it.
All participants will leave with a kit and knowledge necessary to use it. RSVP required so we order enough kits for everyone.
Sign up BY November 25 here: goo.gl/forms/hJ2mcyEEEERnu6U43
This event is FREE for active Kickstand volunteers. We ask that everyone else pay a $10 donation that will go towards supporting Karmik. If paying $10 is not an option at this time, let us know in the sign up form. We will not turn anyone away for lack of funds.
