SOUND BEACH, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker, in conjunction with the Suffolk County Department of Health Services and the Sound Beach Civic Association, will be hosting a Narcan training class on Monday, February 12th at 7:30 PM at the Sound Beach Fire Department. The “Opioid Overdose Prevention Program and Narcan Training Class” meets the NYS Department of Health requirements.

Through the Narcan Training Class, participants will be given the tools and the knowledge they need to respond quickly to save a life.”
