Would you know what to do if someone nearby had an opioid overdose? It could be a matter of life and death.

The Bladen County Health Department and Bladen County Emergency Medical Services have planned a community Naloxone training class Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 6 p.m. at Spaulding Monroe Culture Center, Suite 2, 508 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Bladenboro.

The class originally was scheduled Jan. 25, but was postponed because of the threat of severe weather in the area.

Opioid overdoes affect families, loved ones and communities. You can learn how to respond to an overdose.
