First Responder Naloxone Program

The Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police (VACP) is managing a First Responder Naloxone grant for the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS). The project goals are to:

  1. Increase access and distribution of naloxone to Virginia law enforcement and first responders (utilizing the existing infrastructure provided by VDH Central Pharmacy).

  2. Increase participation in the VADBHDS REVIVE! Training for Virginia first responders. 

  3. Increase REVIVE! training capacity in the Commonwealth through expansion of Master Trainers and Trainers available to serve law enforcement and first responder agencies.

​For more information about the VACP's program, contact Erima Fobbs at efobbs@vachiefs.org.
