Ren Camacho, President and CEO of Akron-Canton Airport
"We are aware of the epidemic and feel responsible as a public facility to be equipped to handle such an incident. If we save just one life, it’s well worth the investment".
Mayor David Narkewicz of Northampton, MA
“Unfortunately, we have had deaths in Northampton, in public places. These deaths can be prevented. Northampton has been a leader in addressing the opioid overdose crisis throughout the region, and we are pleased to be early adopters of Naloxbox.”
Branville Bard Jr, Police Commissioner of Cambridge, MA
“The first aid kits are a visible symbol of how much this city cares about people struggling with substance use disorders and are an important step in expanding naloxone access to bystanders”
