In September 2017 the Office of Emergency Medical Services and Trauma System (OEMSTS) was awarded a four-year grant to train first responders and certain other community partners in the recognition and treatment of an opioid overdose. The grant also requires the office to assist with referrals to drug addiction treatment resources.
For questions or to schedule a training for your organization contact the OEMSTS at OD@snhd.org.
Pursuant to the grant, the standing physician order for Naloxone is available here:

The dashboard and data available through the Nevada Opioid Dashboard are the result of ongoing collaboration between the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, and the Southern Nevada Health District. The dashboard provides enhanced data visualization and integration of statewide and geographically-specific non-fatal and fatal opioid-involved overdose and opioid prescription data.
