Burnaby to look at training warming centre staff in overdose response

Powell River Peak: Burnaby city staff will be studying potential naloxone and overdose prevention training at the city’s warming centres after a request by an overdose crisis working group that the training and resources be put in place at the centres. The Burnaby Community Action Team (BCAT) on the Overdose Crisis penned a letter to council in late May with two calls to action for the city, including providing overdose response training and supplies to warming centre staff.
