The South Hadley/Granby/Northampton MRC Unit is excited to offer a comprehensive training on Sheltering Residents with Substance Dependency. We want to better understand the needs of sheltering people with substance dependency and be prepared to partner with local service providers during an emergency.
Dr. Ruth Potee, local addiction expert, will explain the cycle of addiction, inherent risks, and prevention tips. In addition, participants will receive training on:
- Blood Borne Pathogens
- Safe Needle Handling
- Harm Reduction
- Naloxone Administration
All Region 1 MRC Volunteers, Emergency Responders, Healthcare & Public Health Professionals are invited to join us. There is no cost to attend however; seats are limited so be sure to register early. Dinner will be provided for all participants.
