Milford is latest school to accept free Narcan kits


MILFORD - Milford High School is taking advantage of the free Narcan kits being made available by New Hampshire's Executive Council.

The Nashua Telegraph reported the school accepted one of the 171 kits of the overdose-reversal drug for high schools and its located in the school's nurse's office.

Milford High Principal Brad Craven said he saw no reason not to accept it.

"Any tool that could be helpful is fine with me," he said. "It would be crazy not to" accept it.

The Narcan intranasal spray devices are at no cost to schools. Nurses at participating schools are being trained to administer the drug starting this month, according to the Department of Education.
