EXETER - Tory Jennison, a nurse who works for the Seacoast Public Health Network, is responsible for helping to distribute free Narcan kits to individuals and providers in Rockingham County.
At community forums, she’s distributed 280 Narcan kits, which are effective in reversing the effects of an opioid overdose.
Jennison believes Narcan also needs to be stocked in schools.
“I talk with nurses and they’re not concerned about their own students but about community events like sporting events or other community events,” said Jennison.
She cites Nashua as one community that plans to stock some schools with Narcan, and says she’s had conversations with Portsmouth school officials about stocking Narcan, as well.
“It should be treated like an epipen or CPR training,” said Jennison, who believes it’s a valuable tool that can help save lives in emergencies.
Jennison doesn’t know if there have been any opioid overdoses on school grounds in New Hampshire.
