Greene County Public Health is installing 12 kiosks with free naloxone — the overdose reversal medicine.
The kiosks have 24 boxes, each with two nasal sprays. Each kiosk has QR codes for a training video and for an app called the Brave App, which users can download and connect with someone who will assist them by calling EMS or 911 on their behalf during drug use.
According to the CDC, Ohio ranks in the top ten of the highest rate overdose deaths in the country — almost 50%.
Melodie Kingsley, from the harm reduction team, said these kiosks will help combat stigma to getting help.
Illinois Supply Company was founded with the creation of the Original Allergy Emergency Kit that is now in thousands of schools around the world. Over time, we have become more and more aware of how other risks -- including sudden cardiac arrest, opioid overdose, severe bleeding and asthma attacks -- can also claim the lives of children and adults when we least expect it. With that in mind, we now have over 250 products aimed at helping you protect your building from incidents turning into tragedies. Our motto is "If we can save one life, this will all be worth it". It drives us every day.
