REVIVE!!!     Virtual Class

Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education 

Did you know…

 Overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States?
 The only way to reverse an opioid overdose is to administer naloxone?
 You can be trained to administer this life-saving medication?

REVIVE! trains individuals on what to do and not do in an overdose situation,
how to administer naloxone, and what to do afterwards, and this course is
now being provided online.

During 60-minute virtual classes, participants will learn:
 How to recognize the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose.
 How to administer naloxone nasal spray to potentially reverse the effects
of an opioid overdose.
 Other knowledge needed to fully respond to an opioid overdose
emergency (what to do and not do).

In order to access the online class, you will need:
 A smart phone, tablet, desktop or laptop computer equipped with a
camera, microphone and speakers.
 Zoom video meetings conferencing software, available for free download.

Registration will be confirmed via email, including course log-in instructions
for Zoom and additional registration instructions.

Upon completion of the online training, residents of Fairfax County and Cities
of Fairfax and Falls Church will receive the REVIVE! kit (two CPR mouth
barriers, vinyl gloves, stickers, instruction card) and/or no-cost naloxone.
REVIVE! training is also available in Spanish; email Berkeley.Gerstner@fairfaxcounty.gov
