One Penticton business is asking others to participate in the ongoing Naloxone Challenge.
Freedom Bike Shop participated in the city’s first Naloxone Challenge event on Oct. 21, where employees received a free, 30-minute training session about the ongoing overdose crisis. Participants were taught how to administer naloxone, which can reverse an opioid overdose.
Other organizations looking to get involved and take the Naloxone Challenge are asked to contact the Interior Health (IH) overdose prevention team at 250-462-1050. Communities throughout the North Okanagan are also participating in the IH initiative.
