Here's what you can do today:
- Talk to your children, family members, students, and communities about what fentanyl is, its risks, and how they can stay safe. Find tips for talking to teens about fentanyl at Talk Even If and in "How to… Talk to your child about fentanyl."
- Find naloxone near you. Everyone in Washington can order free naloxone online. Pharmacies in Washington will also provide naloxone without a prescription.
- Know the signs of opioid poisoning: the person will not wake up, their skin is tinged blue or gray, and/or they are breathing slowly or not at all.
- Be prepared to help. Call 911 if you suspect poisoning. Administer naloxone. Support the person's breathing with chest compressions or rescue breaths until help arrives.
