This 2-hour on-demand webinar is conducted by NES Clan Lab Program Manager and Principal Instructor Brian Escamilla and provides valuable information on the hazards of fentanyl and its analogs for environmental agency employees, cleaning crews, and other potentially affected personnel. Fentanyl is a very powerful synthetic narcotic that can be dangerous and even fatal if improperly handled, and the addition of the fentanyl analogs has amplified the hazards and risks of encountering these powerful narcotics.
This webinar provides an overview of fentanyl history, dangers, toxicology, pharmacology, fentanyl analogs, field testing instruments, scene departure, and decontamination as well as symptoms of exposure and the use of naloxone.

This program is recommended for environmental health department employees, cleanup crews, and any other personnel who could potentially be exposed to these dangerous substances.
NOTE: This program does not cover all elements of concern for law enforcement personnel and other first responders. For more information about Fentanyl for First Responders training, please contact us at 916-353-2360 / 800-637-2384 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
