The Florida Department of Health and Florida Department of Children and Families worked in tandem to develop materials to address the current overdose crisis affecting not only Floridians, but the nation. Responding to overdose requires education and readily available resources at the hands of communities, families, law enforcement, emergency medical services, and health care providers. All agencies, stakeholders and partners are being asked to print and display materials in areas such as public transportation vehicles, hubs, and stations.
Educational materials are being deployed statewide to ensure Floridians are aware of the signs of overdose and how to respond. Print and digital materials can be downloaded here.
A public health and safety alert was also deployed by DOH on July 8, 2022 to ensure Floridians remain vigilant of the signs of overdose. This alert can be found here.
