Responders at risk logo

The opioid crisis has been declared a public health emergency and is referred to as the worst drug crisis in American history. It is putting first responders at risk of accidental exposure to fentanyl and fentanyl-related substances every day. Even exposure to the smallest quantities can cause serious negative health effects, respiratory depression and even death.1 It is critical for first responders to be prepared to respond to this epidemic.

Fentanyl is 30-50x more potent than heroin and 50-100x more potent than morphine. Carfentanil is up to 10,000x more potent than morphine.1
