Ada library training location for Project DAWN

Community-based training program that teaches rescue breathing and how to properly administer Naloxone in the event of an opioid overdose

The Kenton Hardin Health Department has teamed up with the Hardin County Prosecutor, Sheriff’s Department, County Coroner, and Hardin Memorial Hospital to bring Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone) to the community.

The training is scheduled for Monday, April 8, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Ada Public Library. Registration is encouraged, and persons may call the health department to attend the event.

Project DAWN is a community-based training program that teaches rescue breathing and how to properly administer Naloxone in the event of an opioid overdose.

This training includes a kit that contains two doses of Naloxone, a face shield, and a reference guide. Attendees will need to fill out paperwork to receive their kits. Refills will be available at the health department if doses need replaced.

To date the county has distributed about 35 kits to community members.

Any person that knows someone that takes an opioid, or has been prescribed an opioid should consider attending this training.

For more information visit the Ohio Department of Health’s website on Project Dawn at www.odh.ohio.gov or our website www.hardinhealth.org.
