Opioid Training

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.
