Maine has a serious drug problem. If we haven't set a record, we are on pace to set a record, a dubious one at that, of most drug overdoses in a year.

One of the tools to counter drug overdoses is Narcan. Narcan is a life-saving medication that members of the public can carry and use to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

John Lennon, the Deputy Fire Chief and paramedic in Bar Harbor will be offering a program via ZOOM for community members who are interested in learning about carrying Narcan. The class takes place on Tuesday, December 13th at 1 p.m.

This is a FREE class, and you will receive a Two-Pack box of Narcan if you complete the training. The training is only 15 minutes, followed by a Question and Answer period.
