Bismarck Public Schools to Get Narcan

5 Narcan in Schools OTS_1513212796518.png

To make sure the worst case scenario doesn’t happen- schools are outfitting themselves with a helpful tool.

A couple of local schools are going to be equipped with Narcan soon. 

Bismarck Public Schools says other schools around the country need it and Bismarck says they want it in the schools hands in case a students life is in danger. 

BPS says they are getting it for the middle and high school levels.
Administration will be training on how to use it later this week.
But Narcan will not be on school grounds until the next couple of weeks.

Steve Madlers, Principal at Century, says, “We hope that it never happens in our building but we don’t want to be caught in a situation that a kids life could be saved if by chance this is what was needed.”

If Narcan needs to be used during after school hours, there are members of the school response team attending those events, but if they are not, 911 will be called. 

In addition to Bismarck, Mandan Public Schools will also get training.
And Williston says no plans have been discussed — while Dickinson told us that the legal council advised their public schools to not have it. 
Minot did not get back to us.
