County Offers Free Training on Naloxone Use

The Baltimore County Department of Health is offering a free, two-hour training on how to recognize, prevent and respond to an opioid overdose by using intra-nasal naloxone, a prescription medication that is used to reverse an overdose.

The final trainings scheduled for 2015 are:

  • Tuesday, December 1, from 6 to 8 p.m.
    Rosedale Library
    6105 Kenwood Avenue
    Rosedale, Maryland 21237
  • Thursday, December 3, from 6 to 8 p.m.
    Parkville Recreation and Senior Center
    8601 Harford Road
    Parkville, Maryland 21234

The Training

The training is aimed to reach those who are concerned about loved ones or friends who may be at risk for overdosing on heroin or prescription pain medication. In addition to learning about opioids, participants will be taught how to recognize, respond to and prevent an opioid overdose.

The session will teach registrants how to administer intra-nasal naloxone to reverse an overdose. Participants will receive a certificate of completion, prescription for naloxone and a kit containing the medication.

Pre-registration is required and seating is limited. Register online or call 410-887-3828.

Collection Will Resume April 2016

The separate collection of yard materials (for Baltimore County residents with “Y” days on their collection schedules) will halt in December, and will resume in April 2016.

The date of the last 2015 “Y” day varies among County collection schedules. Residents must refer to their particular schedule for details (the final “Y” day will occur within the first two weeks of December).

Please note that after the last “Y” day occurs on a particular schedule, yard materials can be placed out with trash on a scheduled trash collection day.

Schedule and Guide Information

Residents may go online to view their trash and recycling collection schedule and program guide by visiting the Bureau of Solid Waste Management website. Collection schedules and program guides can also be obtained by calling 410-887-2000.

Baltimore County residents are reminded that raking or blowing leaves into the gutter or street is illegal.
