Front Porch: Shelter volunteers to learn about opiate overdose drug

Volunteers to learn about overdose drug

Organizers from the Snohomish Cold Weather Shelter and the Medical Reserve Corp are offering a presentation by the Snohomish Health District about delivering nasal Naloxone. Also called Narcan, Naloxone can effectively reverse the effects of an opiate overdose and potentially save lives. Death and dependence from opiate drugs are a growing problem in Snohomish County. Volunteer training for the Snohomish shelter at 6 p.m. Monday will include information on detoxing from drugs and good samaritan laws in Washington. It is to take place at the Snohomish Evangelical Free Church, 210 Ave. B. For more information, call Janet McElvaine at 360.563.2454 or email

This Thursday also is poetry night, with Jessica Madison reading from her work starting at 6 p.m. Open mic starts at 7 p.m. Museum hours on first Thursdays are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, call 360-716-2600.
