Mayor Jenny A. Durkan, alongside community members, public health professionals, and service providers, announces the City of Seattle's new efforts to raise awareness regarding fentanyl and counterfeit pills. The City of Seattle, in partnership with community-based organizations, will convene a series of 25 naloxone trainings to distribute 700 City-purchased naloxone kits. Naloxone, also known by the brand name Narcan, is a nasal spray that can be used to reverse an opioid-involved overdose. Investment in and distribution of naloxone kits is an overdose reversal medication that has been endorsed by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Medical Association.  

Following the press conference, the Mayor holds a brief availability to answer questions regarding Washington State House Bill 2907, a bill that would allow King County to impose a tax on businesses that have employees making at least $150,000 a year.
