Free naloxone training will be provided to people in Moose Jaw this Saturday. 

Pre-registration is needed by the end of day Friday, February 9. You can email them at or call 306-924-8420

Naloxone is used to reduce the impact of opioids including fentanyl, and can be given nasally or through an injection. 

Crystal Harvey is a coordinator for the volunteer-run program Community Connections, which is offering the training on Saturday, February 10 at 11 am at St Aidan Church. 

Harvey gave some insight on what people participating in the training can expect. “They can expect some connections. You can sit and meet with other volunteers and talk about some of these issues.” 

She added that they will discuss the signs of overdose, the Good Samaritan Act, calling 911, and what is included in a naloxone kit and how to use it, and then they will have attendees practice using the kits.  

“We want to encourage all community members to come out and have this life saving training. It’s important that as many people as possible in our community come out and get the training.” 

If you are unable to sign up for this session in time, Harvey said they will look at offering it again.
