Ball Pond firefighters take Narcan training online

Members of the Ball Pond Volunteer Fire Company in New Fairfield took part in a Narcan Training Webinar last week on how to identify an overdose, and how to administer Narcan. The webinar was led by Kathy Hanley, who has been the Prevention Coordinator with the Housatonic Valley Coalition Against Substance Abuse, the Regional Behavioral Health Action Organization of Region 5, since December of 2015.  She interfaces with 26 Local Prevention Councils in the 43-town service area providing technical assistance and resources.  Hanley is also certified as an instructor/trainer of the suicide prevention program QPR- Question, Persuade, Refer, and in Mental Health First Aid and Dialogue Education.
