Project DAWN - Free Narcan Training

The Wayne County Health Department would like to announce that it is now a participant in the Ohio Department of Health Project DAWN. Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone) is a free community-based overdose education and naloxone (Narcan) distribution program.

The Health Department will be offering classes for community members that will train participants on:
• Recognizing the signs and symptoms of overdose
• Distinguishing between different types of overdose
• Performing rescue breathing
• Calling emergency medical services
• Administering intranasal Naloxone

Upon completion of the 1 ½ hour class, participants will be issued a Project Dawn Kit, which will include 2 doses of Naloxone, a medication that can reverse an overdose that is caused by an opioid drug.

Beginning April 25, classes will be held at the Wayne County Health Department on the
2nd Tuesday of the month from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM
and on the 4th Tuesday of the month from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM.

The classes are offered free of charge, but registration is required.
Please call the Wayne County Health Department at 330-264-9590 to register.
