Fentanyl Safety, Decontamination, and Identification for Law Enforcement and First Responders
Over the past several years, law enforcement and first responders across the United States have seen an alarming increase in the availability of dangerous synthetic opioids in the communities we serve. A large percentage of these synthetic opioids are derivatives of the synthetic drug "fentanyl." Fentanyl is listed as a Schedule II prescription drug that mimics the effects of morphine in the human body, but at a much higher potency. In addition to its high potency, fentanyl is readily available and is often used as an "additive" to other controlled substances, leading to an alarming increase of overdose deaths and accidental exposures.

Scenario-Based Tactical Medical Applications
Over the past several years, active community violence situations have brought attention to how first responders respond. One particular concern is how medical care is provided to victims during the early stages of the response. Usually, law enforcement is the first on the scene, and depending on scene safety considerations, they may be the only responders to provide initial aid to themselves, their partners, other first responders, and civilians. As violence against law enforcement and other first responders continues to increase, research shows that having medical providers near downed officers within seconds of being injured increases the chance of the injured officer surviving the incident.
