The Washington State Department of Health has shared a press release detailing an increase in deaths from fentanyl, a potent opioid, as well as tips for how people who use opioids can stay safe.
There was also a recent large DEA bust across five Washington counties that seized counterfeit pressed pills containing fentanyl, “Fentanyl drug sales linked to 5 Wash. counties; 30 people arrested”
On stopoverdose.org we have posted resources on fentanyl and safety for law enforcement, including a training video "Fentanyl: The Real Deal" and "Fentanyl Safety Recommendations for First Responders."
In addition, we also have a "Guide to Fentanyl Surveillance for WA State Syringe Service Programs."
