ACE Hardware: Get the “Tools” Around Fentanyl and Overdose Prevention
CCC MEDS and the NCAPDA partnered with ACE Hardware stores in East Contra Costa County to provide FREE overdose rescue training and fentanyl education at their stores in Oakley, Antioch and Pittsburg. We distributed a total of 40 Narcan rescue kits to employees and community members that stopped by. Thank you to Michelle Leopold, owner of the 3 Ace Hardware stores, for hosting us for this important and life-saving outreach event!
