Safe Coalition update to Town Council (video)

The S.A.F.E. Coalition presented and discussed their efforts to help address the substance abuse issues that troubles Franklin and much of MA (as well as the entire US).

I will share the video replay once it is available from Franklin TV and encourage you to view it to get the fullness of the discussion. 

The video replay is available

The document used for the presentation is here:

Some of the key takeways:
  • All Franklin 1st responders are now equipped with NARCAN
  • Training and distribution of NARCAN to the community exceeded expectations
  • Support line established (call 508-488-8105 for support, but not for emergency situations)
  • Additional communications and education events planned
  • Franklin Police provide real time overdose tracking for Franklin residents 
  • SAFE has a YouTube channel with informative videos
