Emergent Biosolutions to provide free Narcan kits to every public library and YMCA

The company that owns Narcan, the life-saving drug that can reverse the effects of a drug overdose, has announced it will provide free kits to every public library and YMCA in the country.

Directors of both the Newton County Library and Joplin YMCA say the initiative of the company emergent biosolutions is a great way to stay on top of the opioid crisis, but they want to make sure their respective facilities are fully equipped to handle this type of an emergency.
