Reason for Recommended Action/Background

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Agency, housed within the Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA), was awarded a California Department of Public Health grant to participate in the Naloxone Distribution Project. The purpose of this Naloxone Grant Program is to reduce the number of fatal overdoses in California from opioid drugs, including prescription opioids and heroin, by increasing access to the life-saving drug Naloxone. The grant allows the local public health department to provide free doses of Naloxone to local providers to keep on-site and administer in the event of a potential overdose. Possible locations where the drug can be distributed include: domestic violence shelters, outreach shelters, turning point, homeless programs, jails, library and other locations in the county. Yolo County will receive 300 dosages of Narcan in a one-time shipment. Training will be provided to sites who choose to participate; data will be collected and submitted to the state on use of Narcan.

Approval of this agreement will allow HHSA to receive this grant funding and participate in the Naloxone Distribution Project to reduce the number of fatal overdoses in Yolo County.

Competitive Bid Process:
