Fentanyl is a very powerful synthetic narcotic that can be dangerous and even fatal if improperly handled. The addition of the fentanyl analogs and new synthetic opiates has amplified the hazards and risks of handling narcotics. The Fentanyl for First Responders program is designed for all personnel who handle street level narcotics.
This webinar is designed for patrol officers, narcotic investigators, clan lab investigators, fire fighters, hazmat workers, and any other first responders who may come into contact with suspected fentanyl or other narcotics. In this detailed one-hour course you will learn about the history, dangers, toxicology, sampling, and personal protective equipment needed to lower the risk of a dangerous exposure to some of the more toxic drugs circulating on the streets. The use of naloxone, along with fentanyl analogs and other synthetic opiate drugs, will also be covered.
This course provides detailed information concerning the handling of fentanyl and the various other types of extremely potent opiate drugs circulating on the streets today.
