Queens Borough Safety Patrol-Shmira has been hard at work patrolling the streets of Queens. In an effort to keep its members prepared and informed, Shimra hosted David Kushner, the Director Of Government Relations and Special Projects for Amudim Community Resources, to give a detailed training on when and how to administer Narcan to a person suffering an opioid overdose. At their monthly meeting, members were given the opportunity to ask questions to better understand the medication’s usages and best practices. All members received two doses to keep nearby, and the organization’s patrol cars were as well fitted with Narcan devices. The course and distribution were held as the Jewish community has seen a surprising uptick of opioid mismanagement. Those needing the services of Shmira can call their hotline at 718-329-4444.
