40 from Cowichan school district trained to administer naloxone

There has been no problem getting the training organized but there were initial challenges getting the naloxone kits.

Schools superintendent Rod Allen reported to the Cowichan Valley board of education that so far the school district has trained 40 staff volunteers in how to use naloxone, with 20-30 more people still waiting to be trained.

“There are no issues with drug overdoses with our students but there is concern about what might happen in the neighbourhoods around our schools,” he said.

There has been no problem getting the training organized but there were initial challenges getting the naloxone kits. That has been largely ironed out, he said.

Trustee Elizabeth Croft then asked, “Could a trustee get on the list for training?”

Allen smiled. “Yes,” he said.
