First responders from Mifflin Township Police and Fire Departments will be providing free, take-home Naloxon (Narcan) kits from 2-4 p.m. today to residents who may know someone who is at risk of an opiate overdose. Naloxone, also known as Narcan, quickly reverses the effect of opiod overdoses.
Mifflin Township has partnered with Clinton Township Police and Fire, Franklin County Public Health and other community partners to bring this outreach to the community in an effort to combat opiate overdose deaths in the community.
Residents who know someone at risk of an opiate overdose are encouraged to pick up a free kit at one of two locations between 2 and 4 p.m. today. Residents may remain anonymous.
Narcan kit pick up locations include:
Mifflin Township - 2455 Agler Rd., Columbus, Ohio 43224
Clinton Township - 3820 Cleveland Ave., Columbus, Ohio 43224
Residents who are unable to come to either of these locations today can contact the Mifflin Township Police Department at (614) 471-4494 to obtain a free Narcan kit.
