Recently, Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook-21st A.D.) presented the Baldwin Fire Department with a $2,500 grant he helped obtain to replace the floating pump that was destroyed during Superstorm Sandy.

 

“I am very pleased to present this grant money to the Baldwin Fire Department,” said Curran. “This grant was much needed to help the department replace essential equipment that was destroyed during Superstorm Sandy. These are the kinds of things that matter in local communities, and we will continue working for funding that makes our community safer.”

Mangano Offers Free Heroin Overdose Prevention Seminar In Baldwin

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is continuing to combat the heroin epidemic and save lives by joining with County Legislator Laura Curran, the Baldwin Council Against Drug Abuse and the Baldwin Civil Association, to host a free Overdose Prevention Seminar on Monday, April 24, 2017 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Baldwin Fire Department, located at 2386 Grand Avenue.

 

“This free Heroin Overdose Prevention Seminar is just one part of my administration’s four-pronged approach to fighting this public health crisis – including education, awareness, enforcement and treatment,” said County Executive Mangano. “These trainings prevent drug-related deaths in our community, save residents lives and keep families whole.”

 

Residents will be trained to administer Naloxone – the lifesaving antidote to a heroin overdose – and learn the warning signs of drug addiction, new and effective treatment options, personal stories of recovery, and more.

 

Approximately 210 Nassau residents died from heroin and prescription painkillers in 2015. Hundreds more were saved from overdoses by those trained to administer Naloxone. Naloxone has been used by paramedics and emergency room doctors for decades, to save lives. A 2006 State law allows citizens to administer Naloxone in an attempt to save a life, without fear of liability. Nassau County has already provided Naloxone training for more than 7,800 people, at 157 trainings, since September 2012. At least 50 trainees have reported using that knowledge – and the Naloxone kit they were given – to revive someone overdosing on heroin or painkillers, and save their lives. Naloxone is administered through a nasal spray, and is provided at no charge to trainees over the age of 18.

 

Social Work and OASAS Continuing Education Credits are available for the training, as the Nassau County Office of Mental Health and Chemical Dependency – and the Mental Health Association of Nassau County – is recognized by the New York State Education Department’s State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers.

 

All residents are welcome to attend, but seating is limited. To attend the two-hour seminar, provided by the Nassau County Department of Human Services, please RSVP at www.nassaucountyny.gov/overdosetraining For dates and locations of additional Overdose Prevention Seminars, visit www.nassaucountyny.gov/overdose.
