Walworth County Drug and Alcohol Coalition Gives Whitewater Police Department an Overdose Aid Kit

According to an update from the Whitewater Police Department, the Walworth County Drug and Alcohol Coalition has provided the department with an overdose aid kit, also known as NaloxBox. The NaloxBox is available 24/7, and has been installed in the municipal building vestibule at 312 W. Whitewater Street. The kit contains Narcan (aka Naloxone), which is used to combat the effects of an opioid overdose. Common opioids include heroin, fentanyl, Oxycodone, and Percocet among others. The NaloxBox is intended to make Narcan more readily available to the public for emergency use. Anyone needing the NaloxBox should remember:


1) In order to ensure a proper EMS response, first call 911 or notify the Dispatch Center using the after-hours assistance button to the right of the NaloxBox.

2) Follow the directions on the inside panel of the NaloxBox to administer the Narcan and provide initial first aid.
