Plus, the Naloxone Leave Behind training powerpoint recently approved is now posted on the ADHS website! It can be found here: https://azdhs.gov/preparedness/emergency-medical-services-trauma-system/index.php#education under "Naloxone" in the bullhorn section.
For now, access to order/receive ‘free’ Naloxone can be ordered through the ADHS Office of Injury Prevention. Here is the link to the order form.
Under the Arizona First Responders Initiative, free Naloxone is currently provided to those First Responders recently participating in the Naloxone training or to replace Naloxone to those who had received the training over the past 4 years (either because of expiration of the Naloxone or the need for more).

Launched in October of 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46.
Remember to be aware of your surroundings and move yourself and the injured person to safety, if necessary.
