Fentanyl. It’s a word that we have been hearing again and again recently, and is often associated with drug overdoses and death. Considered to be one of the deadliest drugs on the market, and for first responders like police officers and paramedics, accidental exposure to the drug can prove to be fatal.
You take the necessary precautions to protect your body on the outside, but what about on the inside? Do you know how to protect your lungs from accidental exposure to Fentanyl?
That’s why we’ve spent decades keeping you informed on potential risks and improving personal protective products that help keep you out of harm’s way. For law enforcement and first responders, varied forms of Fentanyl pose a serious life threatening risk. Webinar participants will learn what you need to know in order to avoid the immediate and long-term harm that Fentanyl poses to the body.
