The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) NARCAN Training

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) of Dutchess County last week held two training sessions in the use of NARCAN, the medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. Ninety-four local residents attended the training, learning the signs of an overdose and how to administer NARCAN. Those who completed the training received a free NARCAN kit. More information about the MRC, its mission and its training options throughout the year is available at
