City of Green installs emergency NARCAN kits in hotels

GREEN, Ohio – Hotels in Green are being equipped with emergency NARCAN kits.

The kits are similar to AED or First Aid kits located in public places.

The kits will be installed behind the front desk for hotel staff to access in case of an opioid overdose on the property, according to a press release from the city.

The program is supported by the Green Drug Task Force and paid for by the Summit County Health Department, which also provides free NARCAN to individuals or family members of those most at risk.
