Growing epidemic: Narcan installed at Akron-Canton airport

NORTH CANTON, Ohio – The Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) has installed NaloxBox units in its terminal that contain Narcan nasal spray, which can reverse the effects of opioid overdose.

It’s part of a collaboration between CAK, the City of Green, Cover2 Resources, the Summit County Health Department and Project DAWN.

“We are aware of the growing epidemic and feel responsible as a public facility to be equipped to handle such an incident,” said Ren Camacho, President and CEO of CAK. “If we save just one life, it’s well worth the investment.”
