Last weekend Power of Putnam or P.O.P. partnered with Smith County Drug Prevention Coalition, Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network, and Lite Rock 95.9 to host a "pop up" community Narcan Training.
The event was free and open to the public. Booths were set up in the back of the GoodWill/OfficeMax parking lot.
- Over 20 people were trained and received free naloxone kits.
- Medication lock boxes and Deterra Drug Deactivation bags were handed out.
- Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network passed out resources.
- Lite Rock 95.9 set up games and gave out prizes while playing music.
