The Prevention Council, Project Safe Point and the Community Coalition for Family Wellness is offering the first free training program in heroin/opioid overdose prevention at 3 p.m. Monday in the Saratoga Springs Public Library.

Attendees will learn the signs and symptoms of heroin and opioid overdose, as well as how to use NARCAN nasal spray to respond to an overdose situation. Those attending will also receive a free Intranasal Nalonene (NARCAN) kit. Several other programs are scheduled throughout Saratoga County this year. See the schedule of events below.
