POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Each month, Dutchess County offers free virtual Narcan training with the next event scheduled for this Wednesday, April 27 at 4:30 p.m. Each attendee will receive training for administering the life-saving medication and the opportunity to pick up a free Narcan kit after the training.

Learning how to use Narcan, said Dutchess County Government officials, can save the life of someone experiencing an opioid overdose. Advanced registration is required for this event.
