Fentanyl: The Real Deal – Roll Call Training

America’s first responders – including law enforcement officers, firefighters, and emergency medical services (EMS) providers – are increasingly likely to encounter fentanyl and other synthetic opioids during the course of their daily activities, such as overdose calls and traffic stops, arrests, and searches.

To help first responders protect themselves when the presence of fentanyl is suspected or encountered, a Federal Interagency Working Group coordinated by the National Security Council developed Fentanyl Safety Recommendations for First Responders and the companion training video, Fentanyl: The Real Deal. The video is designed for roll call training and reinforces key messages from the Fentanyl Safety Recommendations for First Responders.
